What's your best tweet?
'Tweeting is like a premature ejaculation. The moment it happens, you wish it hadn't happened so soon.'
What are six things you could never do without?
My mum, my grandma, my memories (esp. those of my dad), laughter, my senses and oxygen.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I'm using twitter to further the #kickcancer campaign. I have a big fund-raising idea which will use in the near future.
Twitter or Facebook?
That's like a mother of twins being asked to pick her favourite!
What feature should Twitter add?
A tickle stick!
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
My grandma, 97, but still has all her scruples. An amazing, wonderful, strong, dry witted, funny, charismatic and gorgeous woman!
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Twitter= brevity. I find this hard as I do go on! Brevity is best though, apart from the following terms: #kickcancer, love & laughter
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
I unfollowed someone calling themselves a joker. He tweeted jokes about someone's death within 30 mins of them dying. To me, that's not funny

My life, the world and everything. I want to spread a little positivity esp to those who are ill at the moment. Laughter is medicine!
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?

140 characters of advice for a new user?
Be yourself. Makes friends. Have a laugh. Use twitter to the best of your own individual advantage.
How long can you go without a tweet?
About as long as I could go without oxygen. I even think in tweets now.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
Are you addicted to twitter? Why?
Why'd you start tweeting?
After my diagnosis, I was concerned a friend would be v worried about me, that I would die. I tweeted for her. So she would know I was okay.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Yes. It's kept me positive. Something good (fundraising & #kickcancer) has come from my having cancer all thanks to twitter
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Don't unjustly attack an individual or their beliefs. Healthy debate is brilliant on twitter but don't needlessly insult people.
