The Shorty Interview
with Iceland
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I listen to people who are interested in me and try to help them if they have any questions about me.
Twitter or Facebook?
Yes, dear. And Vimeo, and Flickr, too. (But I cannot be on Quora, because they only allow humans.)
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
I would like it if there were more countries on Twitter. Especially other islands. That would be nice.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
I am a small island and I usually use small words, so this is not a big problem.
How do you make your tweets unique?
I am just a normal volcanic island on the Inter-nets, so I do not try to be unique. I just try to be helpful.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Be ice, I mean nice.
How long can you go without a tweet?
I was around for about 60 million years before tweeting, so you could say I can go a very long time without a tweet.
Why'd you start tweeting?
Because I want to listen and talk to people who are thinking of visiting me, have already visited me, or have already visited me.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Geologically speaking, it will be very similar, I think.
