The Shorty Interview
with Mike Shields
What's your best tweet?
I tweet the following on more than one occasion: If you don't want robots to take over the world, don't program them to take over the world!!
What are six things you could never do without?
You mean, besides Twitter? :) The Mac, my family, a home, transportation. That's six, and not in that order. God, actually....
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
Simply by tweeting constantly, as my followers will attest.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
TweetDeck, until something better comes along. Been using it for over a year now.
Twitter or Facebook?
Need you ask? Twitter, hands down. I lovingly refer to the other one as, The Facebook Zone!!!
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
When I had Twitscoop open in my Tweetdeck, there were several that blew up, so, I clicked and went, "Huh?" Can't remember specifics....
What feature should Twitter add?
Easier search of my specific tweets. After all, it is a microblog....
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
No one immediately comes to mind....
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
I've always wondered why abbreviation is such a long word, however, it doesn't seem fair to abbreviate it.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
@KChenoweth, simply because I'm attempting to get her to sign on for a movie I'm doing....
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Yes, and I won't mention their names, simply because they don't deserve to be named. The reason? They weren't conversing with anyone....
Why should we vote for you?
I'm unique, just like everybody else :) Sincerely, that's for you to decide. I'm going to passively campaign for votes with the #BSPT :)
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
I want "End of the Decade" to go away, simply because it doesn't end for another 359 days....
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
@ShannonElizab responded to one my tweets recently, but I wouldn't say that we're connected. Had a conversation with @KathyIreland too.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#FollowFridayonSaturday simply because I missed an #FF about two or three months ago.... #BSPT for The Blatant Self Promotion Tour....
How do you make your tweets unique?
I'm the only one tweeting for me. Unlike some others that will go unnamed, for fear they might be more popular....
What inspires you to tweet?
In no particular order, current events, other tweets, those that I follow, and finally, whatever strikes me that day....
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Three times. Ignored all three. On one of my blogs, my tweets are labeled, "Cool it with the Twitter updates" as that was the last time....
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Treat Twitter like a blog platform at the beginning, and don't worry that you don't have actual conversations right away. And, Have fun!!!!!!
How long can you go without a tweet?
I'm not really addicted, however, I do tweet constantly when I'm online. The longest I've gone without a tweet would probably be four days...
What question are we not asking here that we should?
Why Twitter, and not one of the other myriad social networks out there?
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
You mean, besides myself? It's got to be, The Scobe, or @Scobleizer for those that haven't adapted the nickname I coined....
Why'd you start tweeting?
There's no unique answer here, as you've probably heard them all, therefore, I'll go with, because I could....
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Yes, but not in obvious ways. Keeps my mind sharp, and active, and has increased my typing speed....
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Be themselves. Talk to me :) So many things. I'd actually like people to tweet more, and not confine themselves to artificial limits....
How will the world change in 2010?
If I knew that, I'd place a huge bet on it, and then retire....
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
I don't believe that you can tweet incorrectly, as it's an individual thing, however, others believe differently....
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Again, if I knew that, I'd place a bet, and retire on my winnings. If you're looking for a philosophical answer, I'll go with smaller.
