What's your best tweet?
Please daven (pray) for my 85 year old grandmother, battling through cancer, chemo, and diabetes: Rachel bat Shana
What are six things you could never do without?
Air, food, water, shelter, light, and a sense of humor.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
To try to promote all our good hard work and various ways in which we have helped and can help others.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Twitter or Facebook?
Twitter. Facebook selectively and subjectively "enforces" its TOS. They seem to neglect blatant TOS violations such as the clear promotion of hatred and violence on their platform. They proudly allow Holocaust denial to flourish. On top of all that, they do not seem to care much at all about the privacy, safety, and security of political activists (or any of their members for that matter) on their platform...
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
#Gaza - It's funny to me how Israel left Gaza in 2005, yet Israel's enemies are still screaming to "free" it (all the while rationalizing incitement to hate and murder Jews by Hamas, Fatah, and other Islamic terrorist organizations....)
What feature should Twitter add?
Banning of auto-DM's. Better DM inbox management. Ability to choose a different URL shortener which does not legitimize Libya, etc.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
I don't really have any rules in that department.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Not particularly. If people want to follow or not is entirely up to them.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
I unfollow all sorts of people all the time when they annoy me or tweet something stupid.
Why should we vote for you?

What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Each individual person I connect with in some meaningful way is interesting to me. It's impossible to rank them.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
How do you make your tweets unique?
For some reason, I'm seeing problems that a lot of people either wish to avoid or don't necessarily see. Not many are speaking out loudly enough about them, so I try to do the best I can to do just that.
What inspires you to tweet?
"At the base of our Torah and our Jewish psyche lies an incessant urgency. Not just a sense that things are not the way they should be, but a relentless yearning that things should heal this very moment." -Lubavitcher Rebbe
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Yes. Then I remind people that no one is forcing them to follow.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Anything you tweet can be taken from the context and used against you. Proceed with caution.
How long can you go without a tweet?
It all depends on the situation.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
It's your interview, ask whatever you like.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
I admire anyone who is using it to try to bring light into the world.
Why'd you start tweeting?
To continue leading the fight against antisemitism and terrorism online, coordinating concerned citizens globally, promoting Jewish pride, knowledge and unity, and to advocate for Israel.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Not significantly. I've been addicted to the internet for a while now.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Stop helping to legitimize the Libya, by using bit.ly, owl.ly, and other ".ly" domains. Pay attention to important news. Avoid trivial nonsense. RT important JIDF "action alerts" and news items, etc.
How will the world change in 2010?
I'm not a prophet.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
The use of bit.ly URL shortner, which helps to legitimize the Islamic terrorist state of Libya.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Again, I'm not a prophet.
