In 2010 Marian Call toured all 50 states on a fan-supported twitter-coordinated indie tour. No label, no manager, just 140-character connections across nearly all of North America (Canada too!). For more see http://mariancall.com and the blog at http://mariancall.wordpress.com.
Interview with Marian
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
#geekpickuplines. Boy I wish I'd saved that hashtag. Binary jokes galore.
Twitter or Facebook?
You mean the Necessary Evil Site? Definitely Twitter.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
What feature should Twitter add?
The ability to choose #OldTwitter over #NewTwitter voluntarily. Same with every update; make it an option. Choices are good.
