What's your best tweet?
My best tweet is one that has helped someone somewhere in any way.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
One of the greatest gifts of Twitter is the ability to connect with individuals who have similar interests and skills. This helps keep me up to date and allows me to target resources in a most efficient way.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Tweetdeck and Twitter Counter are two that I use regularly.
Twitter or Facebook?
Twitter, hands down.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
I have 2 say that I need 2 think about that 1. Will get back 2 U. Nothing comes 2 mind ryt now.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Yes I have. I am not interested in following people who are here only for the hard sell with nothing else to offer...
Why should we vote for you?
You can vote for me because I care about connecting, sharing and making the world a better place.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#mindbodyfitness. Health is our greatest gift so why not maximize it by exercising our minds and our bodies?
What inspires you to tweet?
I get inspired to tweet when I feel that I have something of value to share. I believe that we all have more in common than we realize- so tweeting good content is one way we can learn from each other.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
How long can you go without a tweet?
I try and space out my tweets at least every hour. Of course in a tweetchat, that doesn't apply.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
What special interests or social causes do you like to bring attention to on Twitter that reflect the world we live in today?
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
I cannot think of just one person- there are many people who inspire me by what they tweet & how they tweet it.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
Twitter is so much more than “what are you doing right now?” It all depends on what your goals are. Obviously, the more effort you put into your content and into networking, the more you will get out of it. There are valuable contacts and information to be had on Twitter.
Why'd you start tweeting?
I started using Twitter only out of curiosity then fell in love with the platform...
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Twitter has changed my life in a good way. I have been able to connect with & learn from such amazing & creative people. I appreciate this!
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
I wish that when someone starts out on Twitter they give it plenty of time to get to know and understand the platform, rather than giving up or tweeting infrequently.
How will the world change in the next year?
I cannot say for sure but I hope that freedom & democracy will be given to all those who are presently fighting for these basic rights...
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Overloading a Twitter stream with non stop tweets, using hastags for every topic, using the Twitter default picture, pitching get rich fast..
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Instant communication is changing all areas of society and especially the fields of science & medicine. Research is moving at a break- neck speed because collaboration is available like never before. One amazing field is brain -to -computer interface which will revolutionize what we are capable of doing.
