How do you imagine Twitter changing?
Honestly, it's pretty good now. Gives me chance to meet readers and others interested in writing (and Philly sports).
How do you decide what to tweet?
To share random thoughts or those inspired by news/events. Mostly to interact with other Tweeps and supporters.

What inspires you to tweet?
The chance to share and interact. It might be virtual, but it allows connections where there previously were none.
