The Shorty Interview with kristen johnston

What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?

That it's only weirdo's. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of crazies, but I've met so many smart, funny & witty people too.

Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?

I'm not a fan of the ole hashtag, unless it's a compliment followed by my name

How do you decide what to tweet?

I just do. No editing involved. I'm screwed one of these days

Why'd you start tweeting?

To promote my book, GUTS (outinpaperback1/22). But I realized that was revolting (pleasebuyit) and decided to trash Leann Rimes instead

Biography

I'm an actress (3rd Rock & now the exes), a teacher at NYU and now a best-selling author of GUTS. I wrote the book with no help whatsoever, and the reason I'd love to win a shorty is because I answer almost every tweet, and it's been an incredible way to connect with people who are also struggling with addiction. I'd love GUTS to reach even more people, it's really saving lives. Mostly, twitter has given me a voice, whereas for 20 years I was told to say "no comment". It's really changed my life
