The Shorty Interview with Twisst ISS alerts

What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?

The most interesting is the group of @twisst followers as a whole. There can't be many other accounts with followers in over 160 countries.

Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?

A lot of people learn about science from enthusiastic experts on Twitter, such as astronomy journalist @govertschilling (@goverttweets).

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

The astronauts inside the ISS would be cool. That would be recursive following! Then again... maybe that would break the internet.

What's your best tweet?

We now send out 11.000 alerts a day, so hard to tell which one is the best. I suppose the ones that let someone see ISS for the first time.
