The Shorty Interview
with Machinima
What are six things you could never do without?
Thumbs. (If you had 6 thumbs, you'd be the best gamer in the land.)
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
We use it to talk directly to fans, showcase our videos, talk to industry peers, tell jokes, give away prizes, and relieve boredom.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
TweetDeck. Keeps everything clean and organized.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
#VideoGamePornNames - gave us hours of lulz
What feature should Twitter add?
Trending Topics among users you follow.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Any of them. If you can't fit it into 140 characters without butchering the English language, don't tweet it.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
We unfollowed @SegaDreamCast once we found out it wasn't being rereleased. You live in our hearts forever, DreamCast!!!
Why should we vote for you?
We represent a diverse community of gamers, machinimators, commentators, entertainers, developers, and fans.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
#PlayMoreVideoGames - not the shortest hashtag in the world but our favorite.
How do you make your tweets unique?
We tweet the way we talk and let our humor come through.
What inspires you to tweet?
Our followers. Their questions (or angry all-caps rants) inspire us to get off our asses and talk about what interests the community.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
During our 24/7 Black Ops livestream. We blame 25 days straight with no sleep for that one.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Don't tweet naked pictures of yourself... unless you're over 18 and want a career in porn.
How long can you go without a tweet?
Depends if we're on a winning streak in whatever games we're playing...
What question are we not asking here that we should?
XBox vs PS3 - what console wins the hearts of Twitter?
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
They might actually start generating revenue some time soon...
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
@MajorNelson for keeping his community informed and entertained.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
@Mr_Sark
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
If you're a brand, Twitter should just be a stream of information. Companies should always try to reply to their fans not just tweet at them.
Why should people follow you?
If they are gamers, it's a must.
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
We follow our staff and hosts, like @theDeadPixel, @Mr_Sark, @theiMightyHutch, and @SeaNanners
How do you decide what to tweet?
We try to find things that are timely and entertaining for our followers. The worst @reply you can get is "OLD".
Why'd you start tweeting?
It's the best way to not only share what we are doing as a company but respond directly to our fans and the rest of our industry.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
It's helped take us beyond creating videos where we talk at viewers and start responding directly and incorporating their ideas in our shows.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Stop abusing the Retweet button. We're looking at you @50Cent.
How will the world change in the next year?
Traditional media will continue to lose ground to younger, nimbler internet companies. Also, there may or may not be zombies.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Tweeting your password. ProTip: don't do that.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Have you played Fallout? Hopefully, nothing like that.
