with Gabriel Graziani
What's your best tweet?
Someone asked me why #ACBrotherhood skipped a couple of years and I told them it was because all Ezio did during that time was eat candy.
What are six things you could never do without?
1. My Family 2. My Friends 3. The Internet 4. Videogames 5. Food 6. Energy Drinks
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
It's required that I use Twitter in my professional life... I guess, technically, I don't really use it in my private life.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Twitpic... wait, if I say shortyawards do I get extra points?
Twitter or Facebook?
Why not both? They serve very different functions. Also, my Facebook is for me - it's a personal account. Twitter is more public.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Joss Whedon... not that he isn't free with information on the internet, but I just can't get enough of that guy.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Everything. As a former journalist, I believe in always presenting decent grammar. I know the rules, so I should try to be a role model.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
I would be really flattered if @SethGreen or Joss Whedon would follow me.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Not on Twitter, I don't think... I have blocked people who've been rude to me though. I don't have time for that garbage, hehe.
Why should we vote for you?
Because you are oddly compelled by an indescribable sensation... it just feels right. Search your feelings, you know it to be true!
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
I prefer not to make demands on Twitter like that... I find I suffer way less disappointment if I just accept it as it is.
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Oh that's just mean... like all of the other connections I've made will totally be jealous!
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
How do you make your tweets unique?
I type them all by myself? I don't really worry about making my tweets unique... I worry more about informing and responding
What inspires you to tweet?
Events relating to the products I represent? I'm a marketing/community guy... this is my job, what do you want me to say?
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Nope. I'm not sure if that means that I have never tweeted too much or what though.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Follow celebrities and friends but keep it simple to start, you can always follow more people later! No need to gorge right off the bat.
How long can you go without a tweet?
Two weeks... I think. Did I make it through the holidays without a single tweet? I am pretty sure I did.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
With 34 questions already? It already seems like too many, hahaha!
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
Honestly, I'd like to see them implement some metrics of some kind... any kind really. Twitter is awful about that stuff.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
I admire Larry Hryb (@majornelson) because he is basically the template for community interaction... the guy's a real pro.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
Wow, I follow so many people, it's hard to choose... I'm gonna go with Brent Spiner because he's hilarious.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That there is anything new or different about people wanting to socialize with each other.
Why should people follow you?
Because they're interested in Assassin's Creed or don't mind hearing about Assassin's Creed, because, seriously, how hard is it to follow?
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
I was going to say @God_Damn_Batman but then I remembered that @DRUNKHULK came first... two of a kind?
How do you decide what to tweet?
Basically, if it's something that I'd want to hear if I was following me... that sounds weird, but hopefully you get the idea.
Why'd you start tweeting?
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
If I say no, then I don't have to say anything else, right?
How will the world change in the next year?
See the question about how it will be in 10 years... one tenth of that. So one tenth the hovering, I guess.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Being a marketing-bot and not engaging with the real people on the other side of the tweets you get.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Some things had better hover on a regular basis... that's all I'm saying.
