The Shorty Interview
with Gaspare J. Marturano
What's your best tweet?
"Oh no, who will support their 12 users- Myspace lays off 47% of the work force" It was a little mean, but I thought it was funny.

@PeterGuber Great, smart funny guy. Just purchased his book. I had never heard of him and then I crossed his path 3 times in one week.
What inspires you to tweet?
I want people to hear my voice (even if it's just the written word).
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Yes...My wife says I tweet way too much.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Love @chrisbrogans quote "Twitter is a conversation not a broadcast". Like a Chamber of Commerce mixer, interact & build relationships.

Hmm. I tweet what I feel is a) useful business/personal tips b)important news c) funny quotes d) videos and pics that move me.
Why'd you start tweeting?
I like that facy that conversations were more direct. I love other Socail media forms, but Twitter has the least distractions.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Read there followers tweets. Too many are concerned of the number of followers & broadcasting. Stop and listen (read) people :-)
How will the world change in the next year?
More people will have "Friends/Followers/Contacts" in more places around the globe. If I want to have a beer in Norway, it's a tweet away.
