The Shorty Interview
with Lucy Izon / Canada
What are six things you could never do without?
Friends, laughter, chocolate, high-speed internet, morning paper, optimism
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
Twitter has helped generate lucrative freelance projects, boosted traffic to my website, and connected me with new people I am working with.
Twitter or Facebook?
Twitter - I feed mine into my Facebook. I go to Facebook to read more detailed information on my friends.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
I don't know about trends, but I think that the fact that you've dedicated a Community Category to Bacon is rather amusing :)
What feature should Twitter add?
I'd love to have a feature that told me if I had ever followed someone previously.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
I'd like anyone who has an interest in Canada to follow. I also really appreciate it when followers send me there feedback & suggestions.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Yes, I unfollow people who after a time haven't reciprocated to make it a two-way connection.
Why should we vote for you?
I really work hard at providing my followers with interesting, entertaining content, and providing a platform where theirs can be shared too
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Connected with Emmy-winning Cdn animator who has since brought Canada Cool's mascot (Buddy - the sunglass-wearing Maple Leaf) to life
How do you make your tweets unique?
I search for intriguing and entertaining information that my followers may not be aware of.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
No. I try to average a tweet a day. Occasionally I'll do one or two extra.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Few people are really interested in what you had for lunch. Share with your followers interesting information.
How long can you go without a tweet?
I like to tweet once a day.
Why'd you start tweeting?
So I could make more people aware of the type of content I have on CanadaCool.com
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
It's enabled me to connect with thousands of Canadians. Because it's so easy to use, people will take a moment to share info and ideas
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Share information. I love it when followers offer suggestions for Canada Cool tweets.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Typos (guilty) & sending me a message that begins with 'take this quiz'
