The Shorty Interview with Sheffield Wednesday

What's your best tweet?

Posting it is a bit of a haze, but upon gaining promotion last season a tweet of "WE ARE GOING UP!" was typed using pure euphoria.

Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?

Our lovable mascots Ozzie and Barney are must-follows with plenty of character, fun, banter and pie eating! @o22ie_owl & @BarneyOwl67

What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?

Languages are beautiful and shortening them should always be avoided where possible - we try to only shorten URLs!

Why should we vote for you?

We try to give all Owls fans a reason to follow us:- breaking news, information, ticket details, live match updates, photos and plenty more.
