with Dr. Mercola
What's your best tweet?
I'd be willing to bet that if anywhere near 90,000 Americans die from the swine flu, I'll eat my tie. http://twitter.com/mercola/status/3968808018
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I use it to strengthen ties with the people who subscribe to and follow Mercola.com. It's interaction on a much more personal level.

Twitter or Facebook?
Both. Our health cause is supported well in Facebook and through microblogging.
What feature should Twitter add?
Keyword filter for the Home Feed would be nice .
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
I rarely shorten words. If it won't fit, I'll rewrite the whole tweet.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Can't think of one at the moment..
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Yes. I've come across a few spammers.
