The Shorty Interview
with Adam Levermore
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
It's invaluable. I connect with potential clients, publicize new pieces, and talk with other designers who inspire and challenge me.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
On the iPhone, I use Echofon, but I really like #newtwitter, so I generally use that when I'm on my computer.
Twitter or Facebook?
I use both, but I'm much more public on Twitter. My Facebook account is much more about connecting with close friends and family.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
@paulandstorm's #wookieleaks meme was fantastic. It even wound up being covered on NPR's All Things Considered.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
I'd love to see what Joss Whedon could do with 140 characters.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
My Twitter name is Lexigeek. I'm a word nerd. "Ur" for "your" and "2" for "to" make my skin crawl.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
@bonnieburton. She has one of the coolest jobs in the world.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
I'll unfollow a customer support account (like @godaddy) once my issue's been resolved. I rarely unfollow real people.
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
I got to see a shuttle launch at @NASA's first-ever launch tweetup. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#zombiebaklavocalypse
What inspires you to tweet?
I love sharing design that inspires me. If a new set of really cool Star Wars posters comes out, I'm probably tweeting about it.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
I think so, during the @NASA tweetup. And I may have overshared a bit with foursquare on one trip to Disneyland. :)
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Don't worry about how many followers you have. It's just a number. Just enjoy the conversation!
How long can you go without a tweet?
Well, I generally sleep for 6 hours or so ...
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
My friend @mariancall, also a Shorty Award nominee, fueled an independent, 50-state concert tour by harnessing her social network.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That it's all mindless updates about what I had for lunch and hey look at this picture of my cat. There's a surprising amount of substance.
Why should people follow you?
I'm establishing myself as a full-time graphic designer, tweeting about my journey along the way. I'd love folks to follow along!
Why'd you start tweeting?
I started tweeting back when I was working on a webcomic and wanted to spread the word and meet other cartoonists.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Absolutely! Thanks to the connections I've made on Twitter, my goal of working as a graphic designer in film & TV is becoming a reality.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
How about less? I'd love to see less complaining when a Twitter glitch messes with tweet counts.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Everything goes retro, so we'll probably be reliving the 90s. At least it won't be as bad as the 80s retro revival. *shudder*
