My attempted professional life, you mean. I'm using it to help me understand the publishing world a bit more before I dive.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
I only use Tweetdeck really because I'm not swanky enough to own a cool phone with 'net access.
Twitter or Facebook?
Twitter. It's so much easier to use and feels more free. Plus, you don't get complaints that you over post.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
I quite liked #beveragefilms
today and the other trends where you have to replace words for a themed film renaming.

Being able to check on someone's profile if they're following you back.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Some of the people in my day to day life.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
I don't like shortening things on twitter, but I will if I need to. I hate text speak though so no 'U R GR8'.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
I don't want anyone to follow me unless they find what I write and have to say is interesting to them.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
I've unfollowed a few because I realised they were only self-promoting & not connecting. I want to connect with people.
Why should we vote for you?
Because hopefully you like me and you enjoy what I have to say. I couldn't ask for anything more.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?

Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#noveltyantlers which was simply a cheery Christmas thing.
How do you make your tweets unique?
I like to add a little insanity and hyperactivity. So just a pinch of me!
What inspires you to tweet?
My life, my writing, my pets and the people around me.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Not yet and hopefully I won't in the future either!
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Listen to the more experienced users and only add those that you want to hear from.
How long can you go without a tweet?
Not very long. I'm an addict, but probably not as bad as @maureenjohnson

"Why did you join twitter & how has that changed?"
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
I don't really know, but hopefully for the better unlike myspace.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
because she's not only brilliant at networking & connecting with people but she manages to promote without being in your face.

What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That it is just a place to promote yourself & that there is no fun out of 140 characters.
Why should people follow you?
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
No because they are all one-of-a-kind. That's why I follow them all and not just one of them.
How do you decide what to tweet?
It's usually whatever rubbish comes into my head.
Why'd you start tweeting?
Aha! I thought you would never ask. To help me connect with writers & learn more of the craft to help me on my way.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
A little bit. It's made me see that a lot of people do want to reach out but that it's easier behind closed doors.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Connecting instead of stalking celebrities.
How will the world change in the next year?
I'm good but I'm not that good. There's everything to play for.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Bugging people to RT you is a major faux pas. If we wanted to do that then we would; don't give us an excuse to block you.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
I told you, I'm not psychic.
