with J. Andrew World
What's your best tweet?
When I misattributed a quote to Ta-Nehisi Coates and asked him if he thought anyone would notice.
What are six things you could never do without?
My children, my wife, a computer, good tea, the ability to make art, and inspiration.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
Mostly to find good news stories.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Twitter has apps? I should investigate!
Twitter or Facebook?
Facebook. Life is more than 140 characters.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
Hipsters. I was a hipster in the 90's, but I was less of a douche bag.
What feature should Twitter add?
Galleries. I think visual. I think there is a visual aspect they are missing. Oh and a preview of URLs.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Will Eisner. He is such an inspiration, he should have been granted immortality because the world has missed his light the past 9 years.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Just about anything. Tweets should be legible.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
I would love to have the ear of the president. Maxfield Parrish had the ear of the president, why can't I?
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Yes, because I couldn't take the propaganda and ignorance from a libertarian blogger anymore. I forget his twitter handle.
Why should we vote for you?
Because my art has moved you in some way for a cause or an action!

What inspires you to tweet?
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Nope. I've also never tweeted out anything I left in the toilet.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Find what impassions you and embrace it. Pursue it and hopefully you can help make the world a better place.
How long can you go without a tweet?
What question are we not asking here that we should?
Paul Klee said, "Art does not reproduce what we see; rather, it makes us see." What does your art make us want to see?
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
140 characters is never enough.

How do you decide what to tweet?
Mostly I tweet news article with my sarcastic 2 cents. Life isn't fun when you get mad at the oligarchy, so let's mock them.
How do you use social media to motivate yourself or others to live a healthier life?
Through my art, I hope that my ideas will inspire people to be better!
How has social media helped bring your family closer together and #keepgoodgoing?
It lets me see my sister and niece more.
Why'd you start tweeting?
To germinate my ideas and spread my art on the internet!
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Not really. Twitter is more of a tool.

How will the world change in the next year?
A world wide revolution is coming. We lost the last one, let's take back the world in the next one.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Tweeting what you do on the toilet.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Unless we have a peaceful world wide revolution, much worse then it is today.
