The Shorty Interview
with MakeUseOf
What's your best tweet?
We have so many! It's hard to pick one.
What are six things you could never do without?
Phones, computers, quick access to the internet, electricity, friends and amazing things to explore
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
We use it to keep our readers informed, update them about our progress, product announcements and find out what they like.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Echofon
Twitter or Facebook?
I have to be honest here. Both platforms are different and they each provide unique services. As a tech site, we have to use both.
What feature should Twitter add?
Integration with other social networks. The interface could benefit from an uplift and to make it easier for users to track conversations
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
I believe almost everyone has a Twitter feed, don't they?
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Yeah, this is a wish list that will never be fulfilled. Where do I begin?
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
No, we never unfollow anyone. Everyone is unique. Their tweets are unique.
Why should we vote for you?
MakeUseOf is a small outfit with a miniscule number of followers compared to other big-time Twitters. It would mean a lot to us.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
#MakeUseOf #rocks
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
We've met a lot of interesting people and especially developers for both desktop and web apps. We use Twitter to keep each other updated.
How do you make your tweets unique?
We run a multiple-author site and we append their Twitter usernames at the end of their tweets -- AUTOMATICALLY.
What inspires you to tweet?
To share interesting, useful & funny posts with my readers and followers; and getting them to share it with their friends
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Nope! Never enough tweets to satisfy the IT crowd
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Pick the people you want to follow wisely.
How long can you go without a tweet?
Around 8 hours. That's probably because I'm asleep.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
How many times do you tweet a day?
Why'd you start tweeting?
We wanted to a medium to spread our cool ideas and websites we find; Twitter is the perfect way to do that.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Yes, Twitter has definitely changed the way I manage my communication and source for information
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
I supposed I'd like to ask Twitterers to retweet older posts but that's kind of hard to do at the moment
How will the world change in 2010?
We will continue to see amazing advancements in the field of technology and we will be there to cover it.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Is this a trick question?
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Hard to say. 2020 seems too futuristic to even begin to anticipate. Is it too hopeful to wish for hoverboards?
