The Shorty Interview
with Joan Erakit
What's your best tweet?
Rap Music & Red Wine. Best cocktail hour to date.
What are six things you could never do without?
A bookstore, red lipstick, early morning flights, sleep, the opposite sex, and my red glasses.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
Network, network, network. My publicist is on Twitter!
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Twitpic. Most definitely makes all the difference when there's an image involved.
Twitter or Facebook?
Twitter! How could you even ask?!
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
#unfollowmondays
What feature should Twitter add?
That's left for Twitter to decide...
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
I think just about everything is covered...the first thing I look for is the Twitter feed.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Unfortunately. I can't stand this "unfort" stuff. Just gross.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Oh yes, Atrak. So that I can further this internet banter he's so damn good at. He takes that 140 character thing seriously.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Yes. Once people start talking about their sex life on Twitter, I'm out.
Why should we vote for you?
I'm a bonafide Twitter lover. I wont give you up.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
#cantgetenough
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
I make interesting connections almost daily. I'm more blown away by peoples Twitter names! Mittens?
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#frequentflyermiles I can't be the only one who travels a lot.
How do you make your tweets unique?
My hastags are mine and mine alone.
What inspires you to tweet?
Everything. Mostly the ridiculousness of life.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Not yet...
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Keep it short and simple; and nobody wants to know what you did when he came over last night.
How long can you go without a tweet?
About 2 hours.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
How do you feel about the length of this interview?
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
It could only get bigger and better from here. The basics will hopefully stay the same, with innovation increasing.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
AnderOther. No one is more unique.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
Let me shamelessly plug him again; Atrak. However, AnderOther is fair competition.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That it's pointless. Utterly wrong! It's all the more important.
Why should people follow you?
I've got all the questions and Twitter lets me get all the answers.
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
@FranzDiego, @Frank151, @AnderOther
How do you decide what to tweet?
It's not a decision, that's what makes Twitter so unique. It's a done deal once you click the application.
Why'd you start tweeting?
I'm a huge Chromeo fan, and actually started tweeting once I found out they were on Twitter.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Yes of course. It's given me another outlet to share ideas.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Because Twitter is the perfect platform to promote and network without feeling like a stalker.
How will the world change in the next year?
With new media tools and progression like Twitter, communication will become much easier, much faster and more efficient.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Bad slang. Nude pics. Asking people out. Hating...
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
I can't think that far ahead...I'm still deciding what I want for breakfast today.
