with Naomi Vivian Goodman
What's your best tweet?
My best future tweet would be announcing to the TWIPS community that someone heard them and wants to hear more... by me winning.
What are six things you could never do without?
Android phone, laptop, coffee, Nook, mom, and my husband. The order changes every day.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I connect with peers, meet new vendors, promote, support, and unite like minded individuals in the wedding industry worldwide.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Any Twitter app for Android.
Twitter or Facebook?
Ahhh you aren't going to snag me with this question...more characters Facebook. A broader and concentrated reach Twitter.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
The kid from the E-trade commercials...seriously wouldn't that be cool?
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
All of my "silent" mentors. Mr. Mashable, Deepak Chopra, Colin Cowie, Bethenny Frankel & my mom. The lady from OscarPRGirl, too.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Yes...but that's like asking me to embarrass that person...and above all things I respect everyone. Especially the innocent.
Why should we vote for you?
You shouldn't. Vote for what I'm trying to accomplish in the bridal/wedding industry. Connecting the industry is like herding cats.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
The connections I made via TWIPS from around the world are the most important & interesting connections I've made in ever.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
How do you make your tweets unique?
Keep it fun & informative...silly works at times depending on the context. I just use my real voice.
What inspires you to tweet?
My #TWIPS. They inspire me. They are the only reason I'm doing this. I saw a need and with them it's being fulfilled. Slowly but surely.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
OMG! Yes I have. But TWIPS (Twitter Wedding Inspirational Pals) was formed on Twitter. It just makes sense to connect with members that way.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Hi there. Looks scary but it's not. All you need to know is someone out there is interested in your thoughts. Tweet and they will come.
How long can you go without a tweet?
I haven't tweeted now and I'm getting the shakes....two days...no maybe a day...no more than 12 hours.
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
I'd love to not use another Twitter client to send group DM's. I know Twitter will only get better so I leave that to the pros.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
Mr. Mashable keeps it interesting, makes me want to apply the tools &share the info, and he makes me sound smarter than my husband. Win-win.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
It's a toss up between Ellen Degeneres and Seth McFarland.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That it doesn't work for the little guy because it does. You just have to jump in. You will be followed if you have something worthy to say.
How do you decide what to tweet?
My blog post and what other TWIPS and non-TWIPS are Tweeting.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
It has given me the platform I needed to make a difference in the wedding industry with like minded individuals. Good times.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Stop sending spam.
How will the world change in the next year?
140 characters @ a time. I'm serious about that! Micro-blogging gets your point across without all the unnecessary fluff. I don't like fluff.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Cursing. Unless you know that every member of your audience isn't offended by it. You wouldn't meet a stranger & use the F bomb immediately.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
I don't know, you'd have to ask the BIG GUY upstairs. I'm just trying to figure out what tomorrow will be like by the decisions I make today.
