The Shorty Interview
with Alejandra Ramos
What are six things you could never do without?
My laptop w/ Internet, a working stove/oven, a good book, my Kitchen Aid mixer, a chef's knife, and my antique cast iron skillet
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I use Twitter to network and communicate with other food bloggers and writers. It's a great way to learn and find new ideas.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
TweetDeck! I love it.
Twitter or Facebook?
Oh Twitter. Definitely!
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
Honestly? I don't usually pay attention to the trends; they're usually pretty inane.
What feature should Twitter add?
A URL shortening feature on the website
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
I really wish my brother had a Twitter feed! I'd love to be able to connect with him through this site.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
I try to avoid shortening words & phrases as much as I can. I try to rephrase & edit so things fit without sacrificing spelling & grammar.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Oh a few people! Let's see... @ruthreichl, @tylerflorence, @pauladeen
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Yes, a few people that curse a lot or are very negative and use Twitter to complain. Also Shaq because of his horrid grammar.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
Oh i've never created a hashtag because I don't really use them, but maybe #alwaysorderdessertisthebestfoodblogever would be good
How do you make your tweets unique?
I don't go out of my way to make my tweets unique; I know as long as I'm doing interesting things in life, my tweets will reflect that!
What inspires you to tweet?
Funny things, delicious things, beautiful things, questions, the desire to share, moments I want to savor
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Actually, no. I think I tweet the perfect amount.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Be a part of the conversation: ask & answer questions, retweet, be interesting, be funny, be helpful. It's a community, not a soap box.
How long can you go without a tweet?
Oooh...rarely more than a couple days. But it's usually only if I'm on vacation
Why'd you start tweeting?
I was curious, at first. And then I just loved the instant connection to so many amazing, talented, and brilliant people.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Retweet me. Ha!
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
nonstop self-promotion, spamming links, ignoring people who write to you, Twittering when you should be enjoying time w/ friends & family
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Let's stick around and find out, shall we now? ;)
