The Shorty Interview with Random Acts

How long can you go without a tweet?

It’s akin to breathing for us.

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

We nvr shrtn r wrds. Evr.

What is the weirdest or most inappropriate place you've ever made a social media post from?

The moon! Oh no wait, that was a collective dream we all had. Hmm. It’s neither weird, nor inappropriate (so, really, it’s not answering this question), but we’ve tweeted from Jacmel, Haiti, while our volunteers were helping to construct the Jacmel Children’s Center. That was a pretty amazing location.

Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?

I suppose we should probably say our co-founder, @mishacollins, right? We mean, uh, yeah, he’s definitely the funniest. Also the prettiest. Please don’t fire us, Misha.

Random Acts was born on social media. It's our medium of choice for communicating with our supporters and co-conspirators in kindness.
