The Shorty Interview with Media Matters

What feature should Twitter add?

There are so many independent websites that analyze Twitter analytics, perhaps Twitter could come out with its own comprehensive system. An official iPhone/Blackberry application would be nice too.

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

With more than 11,000 followers we’d welcome anyone who wishes to join us in our efforts to hold the media accountable. It would also be nice to see even more reporters and media figures interested in accuracy following us on Twitter.

How will the world change in the next year?

Without media accountability 2010 will be even worse than 2009 – regardless of the issues you care about, how the media covers those issues will directly influence your ability to create change for your cause.

How long can you go without a tweet?

The media doesn’t rest and neither do we. Therefore our tweeting happens seven days a week in real-time.
