The Shorty Interview
with laurie sage
What's your best tweet?
Recently this one. Because it's true. They are scary & wrong. "Evian babies = http://bit.ly/7unxLG"
What are six things you could never do without?
@essers, pen & paper, kittens, Vimto, toast
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I upload pictures of work I've done, links to where to buy tees by me & occasionally have a thooper dooper competition!
What's your favorite Twitter app?
I only have the one, and that's Tweetdeck. It keeps missing tweets from people, though. I shall have it... dealt with.
Twitter or Facebook?
I really like the instantness (yes, instantness) of Twitter. Facebook is good for spying. Twitter has done more for me, though.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
The #badmovieclub tweets, during a synchronised watching of The Happening last Feb made me giggle like a jiggly sheep.
What feature should Twitter add?
Free shoes with ever 100th tweet. Good ones, too. You could chose from a list of brands. "I am tweeting wearing my CONVERSE TWITTER SHOES"
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Charlie the Cat from the public info ads on 80's TV. He'd be brilliant, and teach us about safety. http://snurl.com/charleysez
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Oooh. I try not to do numbers-for-letters unless absolutely necessary. Also, never ever write imho. TLA equivolent of "I'm not (xxx) but..."
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
If Derren Brown followed me, that would be amazing. Otherwise, I think my favourite tweeterers all follow me. That's pretty cool, isn't it?
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
I've accidentally followed spammers by clicking on the wrong button, and thus have had to unfollow them again.
Why should we vote for you?
Because I would feel very special indeed to win, and draw many victory pictures. Just for you.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
#hothonearth - more Star Wars photoshops! Also #Ijustboughtsomethingfromlauriepink would be really helpful.
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Possibly the lovely @glinner, who is a poppet and does Good Things, the best of which you can buy in DVD boxsets!
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
At the moment, possibly #hothonearth. I am trying to use it to encourage the photoshopping of Star Wars snow beasts into pictures.
How do you make your tweets unique?
I often accompany them with pictures. And always with larrrrrv. Occasionally with glitter, but it gets in my keyboard crevices.
What inspires you to tweet?
Very often, dog farts. Also Interesting Things That Happen, boredom and - of course - distraction from something more important.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Heh. Called out. That sounds a bit rude, doesn't it? Not really, no. I think I tested my followers with badmovieclub.com tweets, though.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
It's much more fun & less confusing with a twitter client. Also, it's not actually the law to follow Stephen Fry, but he's quite nice.
How long can you go without a tweet?
The longest so far was four days, when I wasn't actually near an internet connection. It was fraught.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
Purely on Twitter use, @amandapalmer has really done lots of lovely interactive stuff. Theatre all the way through.
Why'd you start tweeting?
Because my favourite @essers started, and recommended it to me. Status updates were one of my fave facebook things.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Oh yes. It has made me new friends & exposed my work to a massive audience. But not in the illegal exposure way. Mostly.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Have great big love-ins. You know, like texty group hugs. Not the dirty kind.
How will the world change in 2010?
Physically, it will look a bit less icy at the top and bottom. Culturally, look out for some amazing new battle robots. Now in cat shapes!
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
"Follow me please!" and trawling for followers for followers sake. Your followers must larrrrrv you as you larrrrrrrrv them.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
It will be SO good that we shall name it twice, and in honour of perfect vision. Which is a bit unfair to the partially sighted.
