What's your best tweet?
Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Sustainability, Community, Energy Revolution, and Seafood (sometimes you need to talk about more than just fish)
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Why should we vote for you?
Because of our innovative #waveforwhales campaign ( http://bit.ly/iiHDwD ) & our interactive Gulf #oilspill coverage ( http://bit.ly/dRXgJH )
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
What inspires you to tweet?
The community of people using twitter. They are so smart and passionate and eager to build a new world.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
yes, during a non-violent direct action, I got very excited and tweeted every 5 minutes
140 characters of advice for a new user?
twitter search is one of the most powerful tools on the internet!
How long can you go without a tweet?
a while, sometimes we lose internet connection while out at sea ;)
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
The community will become more organized, faster & more affective when acting in solidarity w/ global movements. We see this in Egypt now.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?

Why'd you start tweeting?
For a green and peaceful future... I guess that's kinda predictable ;)
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Organize meet ups and events (that they could tweet from their mobile phones!)
