The Shorty Interview
with Totalbiscuit
What's your best tweet?
The problem with tweeting over 16,000 times is it's rather difficult to keep track. I consider it all a work in progress.
What are six things you could never do without?
An internet connection, a high powered PC, loud-loud music, my top-hat, a packet of biscuits and the wonderful world of gaming.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
Twitter is an invaluable resource for getting information out rapidly to a large audience as well as personally connecting with fans.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Tweetdeck on my computer and Gravity on my cellphone.
Twitter or Facebook?
Hammer or Screwdriver? Different tools for different purposes. Both useful in ones box.
What feature should Twitter add?
The ability to slap some sense into people over the internet?
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
My dreams, though I would imagine I'd scare off most of my followers in the process so maybe that wouldn't be such a good idea.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Thanks, you and christmas.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
@billbailey - Being found noteworthy by your favourite comedian would be a big achievement.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
More people than I can count and usually for insipid, pointless tweets that are neither entertaining nor interesting. Pretty common reason.
Why should we vote for you?
Well mostly because I'm the only one in the running for the Gaming award with a classy top-hat. This is a compelling argument.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
#gsl #esports #starcraft2 #classytophat
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Anytime I run into a game developer through Twitter whose game I've reviewed. I wouldn't rate one over any other, they're all equally cool.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#cynicalbrit - What? I'm not allowed to blatantly self-promote?
How do you make your tweets unique?
Well as far as I'm aware, nobody else is tweeting from my computer, unless there are dark forces at work.
What inspires you to tweet?
Spare time and an egotistical desire to be heard.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Every now and then I mistake Twitter for a blog and end up chain-tweeting some long diatribe. Most people seem to like it though.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
The problem with learning how to use twitter correctly is that you can end up being extremely verbose and run out of space before you can fin
What question are we not asking here that we should?
Can you see the future? If not, you cannot really answer this question because we might ask it in the next 27 questions.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
@mundoverse keeps us all up to date with the humorous happenings of a League of Legends character. Always amusing, always ALLCAPS.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
It's the one and only @mundoverse. Very much niche gamer humour.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That it's all just 'I ATE MUFFISN FOR BRREKFAST!!!1'. Just most of it, there's still a lot of value to be had if you follow the right people
Why should people follow you?
Because you will get raw, sometimes caustic opinion, useful/amusing links and be kept up to date on the latest gaming content.
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
@billybailey @mundoverse
How do you decide what to tweet?
Implying there's a great deal of thought going into my tweets would be a lie and that sometimes gets me into trouble.
Why'd you start tweeting?
Spare time and an egotistical desire to be heard.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
It's allowed me to meet interesting people both in a business and personal scenario that I wouldn't have met otherwise.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Say things of actual value would be a great start.
How will the world change in the next year?
Either the internet will become a tiered, corporate-controlled mess or Net Neutrality will prevail. Here's hoping for the latter.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
I for one have literally no interest in your breakfast.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Hopefully bursting with freedom and great ideas thanks to the internet, but I'm cynical so I doubt it.
