The Shorty Interview
with The Motley Fool
What are six things you could never do without?
Stocks, bonds, mutual funds, Wall Street, Shakespeare, and irreverence.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
As a convenient opportunity to avoid doing anything that might too closely resemble actual work.
Twitter or Facebook?
Two households, both alike in dignity...
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
We'd follow Fool hero Warren Buffett in a heartbeat. Same goes for his best pal Charlie Munger.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
We're big fans of @Sockington, and would really love to give that cat some investing advice. (Tuna futures? Bad idea.)
Why should we vote for you?
Like any good Fool, we speak truth to power when no one else will, and make you laugh in the process.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
#corporategovernance #longtermbuyandhold #sayonpay #fiscaltransparency #gorillaswithjetpacks
What inspires you to tweet?
We love helping folks get started on the road to great investing. That, and poking fun at badly run companies. (You know who you are.)
What question are we not asking here that we should?
"Will jingly caps be all the rage this year?" The answer, of course, is "Absolutely."
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
By 2016, according to our highly scientific calculations, 93% of tweets will come from cats. (The rest will be spambots.)
Why should people follow you?
To feel more confident about money matters; make smarter, more profitable investments; and (hopefully) get a good laugh doing so.
How do you decide what to tweet?
We tend to post news that piques our curiosity, challenges conventional wisdom, and/or tickles our funnybone.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Filled with prosperous investors and responsibly run companies, we hope. (Also, gorillas with jetpacks.)
