The Shorty Interview
with Arjun Basu
What's your best tweet?
Really? Well, this one was made into a movie: http://twitter.com/arjunbasu/status/1595204959
What are six things you could never do without?
Words. Music. Candy. Cheeseburgers. Oceans. Bourbon.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
With my fingers. I type things and they magically appear on Twitter. Also, they're magically delicious.
Twitter or Facebook?
What's Facebook?
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
The Cookie Monster. He probably does actually.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Nothing. No word frightens me. Also, I'm comfortable with long things.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Yes. Because they were dumb dumbs.
Why should we vote for you?
You shouldn't. But if you think what I'm doing is cool, then I'd be honored by your vote.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
#arjunbasuwontheShortyAward
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Depends who's asking.
How do you make your tweets unique?
I always put drops of magic juice on my keyboard.
What inspires you to tweet?
Florence Henderson.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Who told you?
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Just watch the counter. When it gets to 0 you have no more space left.
How long can you go without a tweet?
Is this a trick question?
Why'd you start tweeting?
Why'd the chicken cross the road?
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
If I wasn't on Twitter, I wouldn't be answering these questions.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
I think there is an appalling lack of sex on Twitter.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Killing endagered species. Drinking rabbit's blood. Paying attention to the amount of followers someone has. Selling ninja babies.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
The world will be 10 years older. And we'll still be waiting for jetpacks and flying cars. Oh, and Larry King will still be alive.
