The Shorty Interview
with London Symphony Orch
What's your best tweet?
Definitely the photo of our Principal Cello colouring in the white stripes on his B&W socks with a black marker.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
This IS our professional life! For the LSO it's to spread the word, reach across the world, help out, chat with those that love us.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Tweetdeck, desktop and iPhone, with a bit of Twittelator thrown in for good measure.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
It was retweeted by someone... it went: #dinnerwinner #dinnerwinner #dinnerwinner #dinnerwinner......BATMAN!!
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Valery Gergiev, our enigmatic principal conductor. If every musician knew what he had for breakfast we'd all be laughing.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
#whensthenextLSOconcertImustgetaticketimmediately
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Blimey, that's difficult. There's so many. Love to get tweets from people who've just watched us on stage. Now THAT is connecting!
How do you make your tweets unique?
Personality. You need one.
What inspires you to tweet?
Interesting stuff happening in our lives. A backstage photo goes down a treat, the more random the better.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Not unless our MD looks at Twitter! ;-)
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Be yourself. Don't use those godawful follower-builder services and avoid 'social media gurus' at all costs.
How long can you go without a tweet?
Excuse me a second, I must go and tweet...
Why'd you start tweeting?
How could we ignore the fans!
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Block and report more spammers and scammers so Twitter would be a much nicer place.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Orchestras filling stadiums and pop music being accused of being 'elitest'. Oh you mean in reality?
