The Shorty Interview with Chris Gelken

Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?

There are so many, it would be hard to choose a favourite. I look for useful, original content related to the issues I care about.

What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?

Wow, another toughie! Most of the people I follow are fascinating in their own ways, always interesting.

Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?

Yes, I the beginning I was into auto-follow back - and sometimes that's not really a good strategy.

What question are we not asking here that we should?

Hmm, 32 questions left. ask me again at the end!
