The Shorty Interview
with West Wing Report
What are six things you could never do without?
Oxygen. Coffee. Gym. KCF. Newspapers (online or dead tree). White House hard pass.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
WWR uses Twitter to distribute content from the White House briefing room. Goals: fast, accurate, informative, fair - & a dash entertaining
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
I've always wondered if Johnny Carson, Picasso, Einstein and Brinkley/Cronkite would tweet if they were alive and what they would say.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
"Thank you" "Appreciate it"
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
If people are rude - or crazy - it's adios. Generally, I appreciate the incredible opportunity to interact with so many interesting people.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
#Civility #Politeness #Cooperation
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Just the ordinary people from literally around the world. Some are just having fun, others try to make a difference. Some are lonely.
What inspires you to tweet?
People are busy and consume content faster and in short bursts. I find Twitter to be an excellent vehicle for this.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
A few times. I'm deeply ashamed!
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Twitter is a fabulous tool to learn, communicate and better yourself. Have fun. Disagree with others all you want. But don't be a jerk.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
Down the hall in the White House briefing room is the CBS News Radio correspondent @MarkKnoller. Mr. Knoller is simply the best.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
Steve Martin still has it. Conan. And anyone who passes along an unscripted slice-of-life moment - very funny stuff every day.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Twitter has encouraged me to learn - quickly - about social media and how it can help people, businesses etc. communicate
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Rudeness and assorted incivility.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Warmer. More crowded. A widening gap between the borderless, wealthy elite and everyone else. Big medical & technological advances
