The Shorty Interview
with PlayStation
What's your best tweet?
Hide your kids, hide your wife: UNCHARTED 3 live gameplay going down on @jimmyfallon tonight at 12:30 @Naughty_Dog http://bit.ly/fkf4Bq
What are six things you could never do without?
Our loyal fans, our harshest critics, our ingenious World Wide Studios, half-tucked shirts, bacon-wrapped cupcakes, and you. Yes, you.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
How *don't* we use it? Giveaways, up-to-the-nanosecond game news and announcements, idle banter, smiley-face-dispensing ^_^
What's your favorite Twitter app?
CoTweet is terrific for managing the kind of crazy Tweet I/O we deal with daily, but Tweetdeck is a good choice for a typical user.
Twitter or Facebook?
Both, though Twitter's emphasis on real-time updates can be more intoxicating when you've got a big game reveal.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
#lessambitiousmovies was pretty fantastic. There was also a #lessambitiousgames variant that was amusing.
What feature should Twitter add?
The ability to automatically filter sports talk on Sundays. Seriously, people. We've got video games to play here!
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Arnold Schwarzenegger. Not the Governor, the 80's action star. "Nice night for a walk..."
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
"w/" for "with" looks too ugly. "&" looks too clean.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
It would be an honor to be followed by film critic Roger Ebert @ebertchicago. Maybe we can change his mind on video games!
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
If you've ever Tweeted about a sandwich, then you got what was coming to you.
Why should we vote for you?
Because, deep down, you know it's the right thing to do. And because we'll send Sackboy, Kratos, and Nathan Drake to your house if you don't.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
#urnote. Yeah, we're old-school like that: http://bit.ly/fiQd0U
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
The most interesting connection we've made through Twitter is with PlayStation fans and gamers. It's endlessly rewarding.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
Definitely #somuchdamage, introduced as part of our call for PlayStation warriors in the CES Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tournament.
How do you make your tweets unique?
It helps that we have the most innovative and inspired video games on the planet, so we try to let them do all the talking.
What inspires you to tweet?
To give the most up-to-date PlayStation news and information to gamers as fast as humanly possible. Or inhumanly possible, for that matter.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
It's happened, particularly during the launch night of God of War III. Our followers always steer us straight, though. Eventually.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Tweet what you Tweet best; RT the rest (Thanks @jeffjarvis)
How long can you go without a tweet?
Not long at all, though we do have to take breaks for biological needs (and video games) from time to time.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
What video game character best describes your personality? Because the answer is Kratos.
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
Embedding links and videos/images without affecting character count seems like a no-brainer.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
@JeffJarvis for transparency, bold ideas, and contributions to a broader social theory. And Mortal Kombat creator @noobde...just because
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
@TheKevinButler is the VP of Twitter Humor, so no surprises there. @TheOnion never fails to amuse, but it's not a "person" per se.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That it's a competition to the be the wittiest. That there is no such thing as TMI. That gaining followers is the only thing that matters.
Why should people follow you?
To get official PS3, PSP, and PlayStation news straight from the source. Accept no substitutes!
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
@Noobde for @MK_MortalKombat. @Mashable always has killer Tweets. @PlayStationEU for Euro gaming news. @TheKevinButler for everything else.
How do you decide what to tweet?
Our decision process is simple. If it's new, if it's useful, and if it's PlayStation, it gets Tweeted.
Why'd you start tweeting?
We had so much gaming news coming out every day that there was no other way to dispense it.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Yep. It's allowed us to engage one-on-one with gamers in ways that weren't possible before. Thanks, guys!
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Tweet out their hilarious creations in @LittleBigPlanet and ModNation Racers. We never get sick of seeing them!
How will the world change in the next year?
It's no secret that PS3 gamers will be well-fed in 2011 with 25+ fantastic PS3-exclusive games including Killzone 3 and UNCHARTED 3.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Teasing an amazing secret game that "left [your] jaw on the floor." Tweeting "Time to get excited!" Also see: Sandwich Tweets.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
One step closer to the PS9, with its electronic spores that connect directly with your adrenal gland: http://bit.ly/f6zvpB
