The Shorty Interview
with Dan Zarrella
What's your best tweet?
My best tweets are the ones where I publish some new data about social media behavior.
What are six things you could never do without?
Twitter, PHP, Dreamweaver, Photoshop, my fiance and science.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I build apps around it, use it for research, promote stuff I'm working on and network in my field.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
TweetDeck. Or my collection of hand written tools I use to analyze Twitter.
Twitter or Facebook?
Twitter, all the way.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
The ones that I find most amusing are the expletive laden ones.
What feature should Twitter add?
The No-Fail-Whales-Ever feature. Stability > Feature Creep.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Everytime I find myself thinking that about someone, I find out they do have one.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
I never shorten anything for brevity. Doing so is a big pet peeve of mine.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Alyssa_Milano. She's ReTweeted my stuff, but still doesn't follow me :(
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
I have, plenty of times. Tweeting lots of meaningless quotes is one good way to get unfollowed.
Why should we vote for you?
I have put a lot of effort into innovating the way that people think about social media.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
Science, data, innovation, facts, and #guessingisstupid.
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
I've made so many that its hard to single one out really, but the best ones are the ones that include a real-world interaction.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#IWishIKnew
How do you make your tweets unique?
I do me. I tweet about social media from a unique, data and science oriented perspective that is sorely lacking in the niche at large.
What inspires you to tweet?
I want to break down the "soft-focus-unicorns-and-rainbows"
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
No, well, not by my followers. By my fiance at dinner, which is a different story.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Experiment, innovate, challenge common wisdom and keep evolving.
How long can you go without a tweet?
For a pretty long time mostly, but when I'm getting bad customer service? About 3 seconds.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
The New ReTweet System: Love it or Hate it?
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
GuyKawasaki is one of my favorite models for a successful use of Twitter.
Why'd you start tweeting?
To build a network of like minded social media users across multiple platforms.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Yes, it has given me the best dataset to study human behavior in history.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Challenge accepted wisdom.
How will the world change in 2010?
Mobile apps, augmented reality, small business social media and accountability.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Shortening words, following way more people than follow you, and Tweeting lots of "Chicken Soup for the Soul" type quotes.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
The line between online and offline will be very blurry.
