The Shorty Interview
with tynesidecinema
What are six things you could never do without?
Our patrons, our online friends, our popcorn (om nom), optimism, collaboration and (duh) FILMS!
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
We like to follow distributors, studios, film mags, blogs and other indie cinemas - making sure we're always in the loop!
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Tweetdeck: nice program for a PC, and good for iPhone access. The new Twitter app for Mac: for its elegance and intuitiveness.
Twitter or Facebook?
Twitter for sure. We do have more 'Likes' than Followers, but the real-time nature of Twitter gives us a buzz. Feel all Jack Bauer sometimes.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
Topical for us, and so produced many suggestions and laughs in the office: #InadequateMovieTitles
What feature should Twitter add?
A high five button. Like a retweet, but a bit nicer (and possibly sadder). Kind of like us...
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Definitely the Tyneside's founder: Dixon Scott (Ridley Scott's grandfather!). We'd LOVE to know his thoughts on films/the cinema today...
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Don't really shorten any words, though on many occasions the following chain has occurred: movie > film > pic!
Why should we vote for you?
You're not just voting for 'us', but all the people that come see films/learn/collaborate or just relax in our Bar. The Shorty'd be theirs.
How do you make your tweets unique?
We don't edit, we don't think, we just tweet! We're our followers' friend -not some stuffy organisation with protocol or approval processes.
What inspires you to tweet?
Films and people. We want to talk to everyone about our films, and we want to know what they think of them. That & just a good bit of banter!
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Once - we were getting a particularly overwhelming no. of FFs, and vainly, retweeted. Only because we were so touched though! #LiveAndLearn
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Follow anything/anyone that interests you, and your knowledge of these things will be richer for it. And say hello to us obviously!
How long can you go without a tweet?
If it's been a day, we start to sweat. Longer than that - we wouldn't know, it hasn't happened!
What question are we not asking here that we should?
What's your favourite film?! Our answer to which would be, as ever, what is yours...
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
Anyone that's ever tweeted us - the only conversation worth having ;-). No, seriously: charities that wield Twitter's power successfully.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That it's a fad. We can't imagine our future without it. Input we get on our programme's invaluable & even more open than likes of Facebook.
How do you decide what to tweet?
Feel it, tweet it!
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
YES! Used to programme our films & times in 6-week blocks. Now it's weekly, due to instant convos on Twitter, constantly shaping what we do.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Talk to us! Ask us anything - film/cinema related is fine, but not where line's drawn.. some of our best convos have been about silly things!
