The Shorty Interview
with Bettina Forbes
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
Connect with awesome, inspiring moms and all the movers & shakers in the #breastfeeding world, keep up with #bfing news
Twitter or Facebook?
Both! But spend more time on Twitter, because it's easier to see what moms are saying about #breastfeeding and #boobytraps
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Great breastfeeding celebs like Kelly Rutherford. Great companies: My Brest Friend has a cute name & product but is missing out on the buzz.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
@BillGates @MrsKutcher @TheWhiteHouse @Unicef
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Spambots. Yuck.
Why should we vote for you?
#Breastfeeding is a hot issue! We are changing it up & ending stupid boob vs bottle & mommy wars. We cheer on all moms! http://bit.ly/PO9PT
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
#breastfeeding #bfing #boobytraps #breastmilk
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
@phdinparenting and a thousand amazing, interesting, inspiring #MOMS!
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#boobytraps: the cultural & institutional barriers keeping moms from making informed decisions & achieving personal #breastfeeding goals
How do you make your tweets unique?
W/o judgment, we tweet about what boobs were made for--not just to sell cars & kitchen tiles--and how to beat the #booby traps and feel fab!
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
only by my DH. The guy is awesome and a saint to listen to me rant about boobs non-stop AND fund the start-up of our non-profit.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Be the media. Be respectful, be generous & gracious; thank for RTs & RT good tweets. Set time limits on tweeting (still working on that!)
How long can you go without a tweet?
@#$%&*
Why'd you start tweeting?
@that_danielle, founder of Celebrity Baby Blog (@CBBVIPS) suggested it. CBB gets 10 mil/mo.; we want same for #breastfeeding cause
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Gives us a pulse on #breastfeeding news/issues; & help moms beat the #boobytraps; & cheer on, coach and celebrate ALL moms to achieve goals!
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
RTing without checking that the link/website remains intact.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
#Breastfeeding will be celebrated and supported everywhere like it is in Mongolia. http://bit.ly/5ybbuX
