The Shorty Interview with Zach Covey

What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?

It's for telling people what you do this second. Not really, it's a much easier way to interact with your viewers and followers!

Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?

Yes I have. I just realized their tweets weren't for me...and they were posting like 5 a minute. #extremetweeting

What will the world be like 10 years from now?

A social media haven. It's why I am so excited I am the first generation to live in social media..."The Internet Killed The Video Star"

Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?

My parents. When I go away to college, I would love to tweet them instead of call. So much easier...plus it's 140 characters. ;)
