with Paula Poundstone
Twitter or Facebook?
Twitter! of course. I can't even believe you're asking. I hate
Facebook, and I want you to know that when I was nominated for "Miss Facebook" I never said anything bad about Twitter, unless you know someone who works there.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Ghandi. "Still didn't hit anyone...Getting really hungry."
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
140 characters of advice for a new user?
When you find you can break logs with your thumbs, and you haven't
eaten, or bathed for days, you may be tweeting too much.
Why'd you start tweeting?
A friend of mine showed it to me. She showed me that she followed
Shaquille O'neill. I knew right away I belonged on Twitter. It was
like when Fanny Brice met Nicky Arnstein in Funny Girl. Everything
froze, and I heard, "Twitter, Twitter, what a beautiful name." I may
have begun to sing. I don't remember. I blacked out.
I still don't remember the the Shaquille O'neill tweet she showed
me, but honestly, what could it have said? "I'm still way up here,"
or, "Gee, you guys look small. I wish I could hear you."
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
I often don't eat, or bathe for days, and my thumbs have grown
How will the world change in 2010?
Burlap will be a more popular fabric.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
I used to just hand write notes in 140 characters, and deliver them
door-to-door a few times a day. Boy, people don't like that.
Embarrassing? You betcha.
