The Shorty Interview
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.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
HootSuite.
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.
Why should we vote for you?
Make a stand for Natural Health!
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
#VitaminD, #Vaccines, #OrganicWeekend (Let's see what organic treats people gobble up on weekends!)
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Hard to say. Everyone has a tale to tell here in Twitter.
How do you make your tweets unique?
I provide natural health tweets on a daily basis.
What inspires you to tweet?
Tweets get important health news across in no time. But more than speed, there's so much room for interaction.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
No, I believe. Everyone here seems "gluttonous" when it comes to fresh knowledge and information. Such nose for news!
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Keep it short and make it count!
How long can you go without a tweet?
Until the next health information - or big breaking news - comes up.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
What is one funny downside to microblogging?
Why'd you start tweeting?
To connect with fellow natural health enthusiasts and to reach out to those wanting to learn.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Yes. It has enabled me to further transcend barriers, with more and more on the grassroots now gaining access to vital health information.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
RT important breaking health news around the globe
How will the world change in 2010?
Have you noticed breaking news coming out in Twitter first, then in mainstream media next? The new wave of info revolution continues in 2010.
