with Ruth Bourdain
What's your best tweet?
Never settle for anything less than extra-virgin. The best olive oils never even make it to second base.
What are six things you could never do without?
Tangerine zest, absinthe, pork belly, spatchcocking, salt, and Twitter.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
I always start with an appetizer of roasted marrow bones with parsley salad when I sit down to tweet.
Twitter or Facebook?
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
Gourmet school buses.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Extra virgin olive oil.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
Pepin♥Bieber, pork belly, #RobotCoupeFTW, pacojetting, #IdSousVideThat, #McRibsAreMadeofPeople, #WordsThatLeadtoSpatchcocking
How do you make your tweets unique?
These are not your processed, supermarket tweets. They're artisanal.
How long can you go without a tweet?
Two to three hours, depending upon my supply of tangerine zest and absinthe.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
@ruthreichl and @noreservations, naturally.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
I don't want to get too philosophical, but I wouldn't exist without Twitter.
