The Shorty Interview with Kate Russell

How long can you go without a tweet?

One day, maximum.. but I always feel totally compelled to roll back my timeline and reply to everyone I missed in the day!

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

VeryShortStory, GoodMannersUK

What's your best tweet?

They are all awesome! Otherwise I wouldn't tweet them :)

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

Not using'follow back' strategy for gaining followers. It's completely pointless asking people to follow you if they're not listening to you
