The Shorty Interview
with Rob Garcia
What are six things you could never do without?
Internet, water, excercise, family, faith, innovation (not in that order)
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
To get the word out on @LendingClub and P2PLending in general

Hootsuite
Twitter or Facebook?
Both
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
Fail vids, pics, tweets... really funny stuff
What feature should Twitter add?
twitter followers suggestions: who I may want to follow, who should follow me
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
please, thank you and love
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Not really. That's the beauty of this whole medium... you follow who you find interesting... don't wanna read my tweets? not a prob!
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Anybody who spams, solicits or is plain rude will soon see my unfollow
Why should we vote for you?

Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
P2PLending, Microfinance, crowdfunding, financial innovations
What inspires you to tweet?
Financial innovations that make banking easy, simple and even more rewarding
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Sure! You would not be doing it right if you weren't every now and then.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Be yourself and tweet from your heart. But don't abuse tweeting, as you would not abuse a megaphone in a busy city corner.
How long can you go without a tweet?
About 8 hours (same amount of time I need to wake up refreshed the next day)
What question are we not asking here that we should?
What will happen to twitter if they can't figure out a monetization model?
Why'd you start tweeting?
Felt natural. Made sense.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Sure and it's about to change yours too... I'm more relaxed when I tweet
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Tweet more thought provoking ideas
How will the world change in 2010?
Increase of consciousness of misuse of natural resources, emergence+acceptance of new financial models, back to core human values
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Automated DM to new followers, request a new follower to vote for you for a Shorty, change meaning of your tweet when RTing
