with The Llama
What's your best tweet?
"Stick out your bottom lip as far as you can. Now say 'I'm not grumpy, this is just how my face looks.' Good." was a follower favorite.
What are six things you could never do without?
It's rude to ask a llama to count.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
Pshaw, professional life? I'm just a llama. The wizard isn't here, go away!
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Twitpic. When someone sends me a pic of their reaction to my tweet, it makes me kick my llama legs with glee.
Twitter or Facebook?
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
I really liked the "I'mma let you finish" stuff, where people made up clever antitheses. People are funny. Good.
What feature should Twitter add?
It would be nice to get a weekly log of all your tweets, messages and replies -- preferably delivered to your door by carrier pigeon.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
My mother. It would be hilariously similar to the @commonsquirrel's, I think.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
I would like President Obama to follow me. You know, when he needs a break. I'm a palate cleanser.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Not that I recall. I follow a lot of people. I like to see what's out there in the ether.
Why should we vote for you?
Because it's not that I'm weird, it's that I make YOU weird.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
I've seen people tweeting each other "I didn't know you were a llama follower!" I think that's neat.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
I don't think I've created one. I will now. #llamadrama
How do you make your tweets unique?
I dunno. Sometimes I run them by my friend Marshall. Marshall Llama.
What inspires you to tweet?
I like the idea of people all doing the same silly thing at once. I think it puts good energy into the world.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
140 characters of advice for a new user?
You don't have to use all 140 characters. Good.
How long can you go without a tweet?
I seem to last the weekend okay, but I don't like to push it.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
@commonsquirrel - way to keep it simple. I love having that little animal running around in my feed, burying acorns in it.
Why'd you start tweeting?
To make people do stuff. Not because I have issues, but because otherwise they won't have anyone to tell them to do stuff.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Before, when I typed commands into my computer, nothing happened.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Find more creative ways to interact with each other, and focus on using it to bring people together, not isolate them.
How will the world change in the next year?
In every way, and in no way at all.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
No rules! Climb Ev'ry Mountain! Tiiiiilllll yooooooo fiiiiiind YAAAAAAAWAAAWWWWWWW DREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEMMMM!
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
