What's your best tweet?
My best tweets are any that I've had to delete afterwards...
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
To my extreme disadvantage. I've ruined my reputation as a crazy bitch by coming across as a real person.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
That's the madness of it all! I absolutely cannot think of anyone who DOESN'T have one, famous or not...
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
"Plague," "tea," & "bloody hell." However! In Hamlet, Polonius does say that "brevity is the soul of wit" so prhaps punc2atn IS ovr8ted.
Why should we vote for you?
Because I'm not sure if this whole thing is for real, and I suppose the only way I'll know is by winning.
What inspires you to tweet?
An inflated sense of self-importance.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Think of it like a haiku, and it won't seem so repressive. It will either teach you to be concise, or to send several tweets in a row.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
Rainn Wilson. He's also the weirdest, so I'm not sure why he isn't beating me in that category...
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That it's not an addiction worthy of being featured on "Intervention."
Why should people follow you?
I'm not sure they should. I say 'fuck' far more often than is either appropriate or necessary, and I'm also legally insane, so...
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
@SirEdwardTheRat, @BasilTheRatty, and @KillerBreadMan.
How do you decide what to tweet?
I tweet the first inane thing that pops into my head at any hour as though every thought I have is important. Isn't that the whole idea?
Why'd you start tweeting?
Peer pressure. Always works.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
To be serious for a moment, I've realized that there's intense magic in people all over the world thinking the same thought at the same time.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Tweeting whilst intoxicated. We all say we'll never do that again, but...
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
We'll hve 4gotten how 2 mke I contact w/anythng but our phones, or we'll hve remembrd how 2 experience a moment w/out pausing 2 tweet abt it
