The Shorty Interview with Simon and Martina

Twitter or Facebook?

Facebook

How long can you go without a tweet?

Couple of days or so.

What will the world be like 10 years from now?

Older

Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?

Simon's Dad. He'd be hilarious to have on Twitter.

Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?

What was the funniest trend you've seen?

Sad Keanu

How do you use Twitter in your professional life?

To share pictures of stuff in Korea, share links, and talk to people.

Each Other, Our Laptops, Cameras, Music, Pillows, Ranch Dressing

What question are we not asking here that we should?

A/S/L?

#oohyousonasty

How do you decide what to tweet?

If someone's tweet gets our attention, we give them our attention :D

What feature should Twitter add?

RTs should include the original tweet, without affecting the character count. We can barely respond to people in LESS than 140 characters!

Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?

I won't say who, but I unfollowed people for RT'ing others often without including the original tweet. WHAT ARE YOU RESPONDING TO?

Why should we vote for you?

Because we use it in countless ways to not only interact with our audience, but include them in the creation of our content.

Any apostrophe + s word. EVER!

Why'd you start tweeting?

To start talking to people

Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?

OOHYOUSONASTY!

Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?

We consciously think to ourselves, every day, "hey, did we speak with people on Twitter today yet?"

Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?

We don't follow that many people on Twitter, so we can't say!

How will the world change in the next year?

Everything will be dubstep-ified.

What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?

It's only used for narcissistic purposes. We've heard that a lot...

Ever get called out for tweeting too much?

When we do fan chats, then we usually answer 10-20 Tweets, and - yes - we get called out for Tweeting too much then :D

What are some big Twitter faux pas?

Tweeting the same thing more than once.

What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?

Cat pictures. Could definitely use more cat pictures :D

Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?

My sister's account! It's one of a kind in our follower list, at least :D

What inspires you to tweet?

Awesome people saying awesome things to us :D

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

Gawker. Their headlines are always so damned intriguing...

140 characters of advice for a new user?

Cut out all unnecessary words.

Why should people follow you?

Because we know a side of Korea you don't know, and it's cool!

How do you imagine Twitter changing?

141 characters. It'll happen. You watch!

How do you make your tweets unique?

By not repeating myself :D

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

Some music companies have reached out to us through our Twitter accounts, and we collaborated as a result.
