The Shorty Interview
with Carolyn Porco
What feature should Twitter add?
Make it far easier to search the list of your followers. And keep Twitter from going belly-up as it often does.
Why should we vote for you?
Because I care deeply about spreading the word that science is an integral & transforming feature of human culture that we should all embrace
How do you make your tweets unique?
I add wit while informing others of impt info. And I tweet abt science & impt events as well. Both affect the lives of my followers.
Why'd you start tweeting?
To draw attention to the great exploratory expedition humanity is presently conducting around Saturn. It is cause for great celebration!
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
It's put me in touch with a great many interesting people who think & communicate interesting ideas...for free.
