The Shorty Interview
with T-Mobile USA

What was the funniest trend you've seen?
A "Signs that you need a new cell phone" discussion. There were more references to 80s cell phones than you could count.
What feature should Twitter add?
It would be nice if we could hyperlink words instead of using a URL at the end of the tweet.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Charles Barkley. Come on Chuck!
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Cnt thnk of NE. NEthng cn n shud b shrtnd.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
We'd love it if @iJustine gave up her iPhone for a myTouch 4G. We offer it in white!

We prefer to Stick Together!

How do you make your tweets unique?

What inspires you to tweet?
T-Mobile is known for our high level of customer service. As long as our fans use Twitter, we'll be there to answer questions and help.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Yes, we've had those days. But what can we say, we're a company that is all about making communication easier. We love to talk!

Listen more than you tweet.
How long can you go without a tweet?
About as long as we can hold our breath.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
A corporate Twitter feed is only as good as the team behind the keyboard. It would be great to ask about the people who make the magic.

We like to think of T-Mobile as a fun, cool, genuine and daring brand. We have a lot of fun chatting with our fans on Twitter.
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
All of our fans are unique and we follow everyone back. It is a great way to Stick Together.

We just ask ourselves, "What would our fans want to know about?"
Why'd you start tweeting?

Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Of course! It is hard to remember life before I had Twitter on my Android phone.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Many people don't take full advantage of their Twitter profile as a way to share who they are and what they're all about.
How will the world change in the next year?
We're going to see mobile phones used for an increasing number of daily tasks, like mobile phone payments or unlocking doors.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Spamming your followers with marketing messages is never a good idea.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Hold on a second, let me pull up my Magic 8-Ball app on my Android phone.
