What are six things you could never do without?
Air, water, family, my handful of friends, my laptop and Internet. (not necessarily in this order :) )
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I tweet links to my write-ups or the work of people that I enjoy and I share my interests & news with people I know would like them.
Twitter or Facebook?
Both. Twitter is a global community and you can reach a wide audience. I have a FB page and a personal acc to keep up with my inner circle.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Well, I believe God has already a twitter feed, so there's no one left. :)
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Yes. Some of the public figures I follow.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Yes, quite a few people. I either lost interest or my timeline was severely flooded by them. On a bright side, no one was rude to me.
Why should we vote for you?
I've come a long way since I started writing 15 months ago. I am happy with my progress and all feedback I got so far was positive.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
How do you make your tweets unique?
Depending on the type of content I share. Quick links to my articles, or sharing links to what I find interesting on the web.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
No. I know how annoying this is, so I'm not trying to do this to my followers. Especially since now you can schedule your tweets.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Know why you choose twitter for, be specific, be funny, don't flood your followers timeline w/ RTs & chats. Use DMs instead.
How long can you go without a tweet?
I tweet daily, but with moderation. I schedule most of my tweets for afternoon & evening after I first check in briefly in the morning.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
There's many of them and I appreciate them for tweeting the right things at the right time. Like @jack
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
Can I mention more than one? @mikiturner, @katewalsh, @heatherpeace, @stamieLA
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
How do you decide what to tweet?
I just think: Would I read such a tweet? I try to decide to the best of my ability and be a little less boring.
Why'd you start tweeting?
Out of curiosity. Now I'm using it more as a tool to promote my writing and interact w/ peeps w/ similar interests.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Totally. I couldn't have built an audience for the type of work I undertook in the past 15 months. And I made some valuable new friends.
How will the world change in the next year?
Hard to tell, things seem to be quite unsettled. Hopefully for the better, if the Mayan predictions prove to be wrong.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Retweeting just for the sake of it, pretending to be someone else, craving celebs attention, being rude.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Hopefully less crazy and less greedy for instant gratification and more introspective.
