The Shorty Interview
with Liza Sabater
What's your best tweet?
they're all fantastic, thank you very much :)
What are six things you could never do without?
moisturizers, hair ties, lipstick, wiiActive, my 2 cellphones and my eeePC :)
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
i've tweeted breaking news, i use twitter as springboard for researching topics and DMs is turning into a sort of priority email
What's your favorite Twitter app?
i have several: twittergadget, power twitter, echofon, ping.fm, dailytwitter & twitter (drupal), twitterfeed and friendorfollow
Twitter or Facebook?
twitter
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
boobie twittering ( * )( * )
What feature should Twitter add?
in the absence of extending their services to Swedish massages, i'd love to see a "this person is following you" badge on their profile page
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
my mom :D
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
unfuckingbelievable
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
@common_squirrel doesn't follow me and that makes me very sad. neither does @r2d2 --which is lame because @darthvader does
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
all the time and thanks to Ad.ly. also, there's waaaay too many wannabe marketing gurus who are just basically annoying
Why should we vote for you?
i tweet in 4 languages, i can tweet about politics or philosophy in 140 characters and am profanely funny
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
#ilovemichaelsteele #fuckyeah #glennbeckisanidiot #yaygaymarriage #ireallywanteduniversalhealthcare #amnestytoallimmigrants #ihadanabortion
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
can i totally fangirl on @williecolon? i still can't believe he follows me --and am being ultra-uncool admitting it but IDGAF :)
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#fuckyeah
How do you make your tweets unique?
i love mixing politics, pop-culture humorously. even though it's mostly in English & Spanish, i occasionally do so in Portuguese & French
What inspires you to tweet?
my twitterinos. i honestly get inspired to write by the amazing minds i come across my twitter stream
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
yes :D ESPECIALLY when am liveblogging events like the Sonia Sotomayor hearings, the NY Senate vote for marriage equality or the Oscars
140 characters of advice for a new user?
99% of the time you don't need *that* ; the same goes for *i*. forgo commas when listing users. same goes for periods at the end of a tweet
How long can you go without a tweet?
i think the longest has been a day. but 10-12 hours is way too long for me
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
there are too many people whom i love following on twitter; better to take a look at my @blogdiva/blogdiva100 list
Why'd you start tweeting?
writing is like breathing to me and twitter is a shot of oxygen for the blog-exhausted
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
yes. it's made me recalibrate what "being naked online" means and looks like
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
engage me as opposed to try to sell me something, some cause or somebody
How will the world change in 2010?
i wish i were that optimistic
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
oh, this one goes out to @twitter themselves: that thing they call "retweet"? it needs to DIAF. i hate it.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
very much like today only most of what we do on a laptop of desktop will be done on mobile tabletphones
