How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I use it mostly for gaming news and keeping in touch with people in the gaming industry.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Tweedeck. Aggregame is also a cool new app.
Twitter or Facebook?
Twitter for my latest news regarding gaming and other stuff, it's my public feed. Facebook is my personal feed.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
There's been quiet funny ones for sure ;) Always funny seeing 2 battling trends. Especially #HateItWhenBoys #HateItWhenGirls etc ;)
What feature should Twitter add?
Mutual Followers, so you know who your following/your followers is following/ being followed by the person's Twitter you are currently on.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Be cool if some Treyarch developers did, to keep in touch with the community more. Be cool if more IW devs did too.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Not particularly, if people choose to follow me then I'm honoured, if not then fine.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
A few people. Mostly due to spam and over-tweeting. I don't unfollow anyone that doesn't deserve it or is following me ;)
Why should we vote for you?
You shouldn't but eh it would be awesome if you did. I've been on Twitter for a year, I tweet about my life and gaming. Your choice ;)
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty, WePlayCoD, Modern Warfare 24/7, Boyle111 ;) Would all be cool right now ;)
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Not sure. Everyone on Twitter seem cool interesting people.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
None really. Or maybe #DoubleXPForMW2
How do you make your tweets unique?
Their about my day to day life, what could be more unique? ;)
What inspires you to tweet?
My followers. What would be the point following someone if they don't tweet? ;)
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Yes quite a few times haha. But eh, it's my personal Twitter not my business one, therefore people can unfollow me whenever they want ;)
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Tweet stuff people want to know. Latest news, your interests etc. People wan't to be able to associate with you, not know boring stuff.
How long can you go without a tweet?
Ermm may 2 hours, if that!
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
Developers and those in the industry I admire most, due to their commitment to keep their followers up to date. Their very quick.
Why'd you start tweeting?
It was actually to get a free code for World At War's first Map Pack I believe ;)
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
I suppose ;) It's certainly kept me busy and "geeky" ;)
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Bring frequent gaming news.
How will the world change in 2010?
I don't think it will change. There will be highs, lows, great films, great gaming changes. Every years the same.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
I don't know.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Flying cars, robots destroying the earth, teleporters. In all seriousness, it'll be exactly like now with more consistent warning of Climate.
