The Shorty Interview
with Matthew K
What are six things you could never do without?
Wasn't this a question on OKCupid.com too?
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Twitter for iPhone. I use Tweetie for Mac as well, but prefer the web application when I can use it.
Twitter or Facebook?
Twitbook.
What feature should Twitter add?
Threaded Twitter @ replies.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Steve Jobs. The real one, not that parody account.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
"Hello," "Your," "See ya."
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
There's lots of people I follow who I wish would follow back, but people follow others they feel connected with or find useful.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
#bologna
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
I've met lots of new journalism colleagues through Twitter.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Don't become a cliche. Social first, market second. Integrate Twitter with your life, but don't let it become your life.
How long can you go without a tweet?
I've gone a few days without a tweet...though usually only if I'm traveling or extremely busy.
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
Twitter won't change.
Why should people follow you?
They'll learn something new.
How do you decide what to tweet?
If I find it interesting, I'll tweet it. My interests vary. I'm an eclectic Twitter user. That throws people off sometimes.
Why'd you start tweeting?
I started in Feb 07. Twitter was new. Seemed like a good idea at the time.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Behave more like a human, less like a marketing robot or advertiser. There's more to Twitter than micro-marketing.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Smaller.
