The Shorty Interview
with Dusty Trice
What's your best tweet?
The next one. Stupid Question. Next!
What are six things you could never do without?
iPhone, Twitter, enormous office couch, TV, Macbook, Diet Coke
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I use twitter to communicate with the media, bring attention to important political issues and, of course, shameless self-promotion.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Tweetie.
Twitter or Facebook?
Twitter. Doy.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
That month where 'Twilight' references were the only thing we saw trending. That was hilarious. Ugh.
What feature should Twitter add?
List-specific tweets that only are visible to members of specific lists. Oh, and in 3D. Like Avatar. Only better.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
James Carville
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
I try never to shorten. Ever. I'll break up my thoughts into multiple tweets, which happens frequently if I get in a ranting mood.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
OMG, @PerezHilton. Hands down. Not political in the slightest, but he gets how blogging SHOULD be done.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
I refuse to join your 'gang', I don't want to fill out your survey and I don't want to know how to get 10k followers. You will be unfollowed
Why should we vote for you?
I'm a political staffer who likes to overshare. I think my political tweets make are entertaining and my links are worth following.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
#StarWarsPornName #ImADoctor #HookersForRomney #StraightToDVD #TeamOrly #PoliticalNinja
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Got a tweet from @JoeTrippi, which totally blew my mind.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#ShutUpYou and #EatingCrayons
How do you make your tweets unique?
I try to be funny. I also avoid holding back and being politically correct.
What inspires you to tweet?
People being stupid or links being awesome.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Yes. That and I tweet too many pics of dogs wearing funny costumes.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Select 'Public' and overshare as much as humanly possible. Don't give up if you don't get it right away. And choose a good pic.
How long can you go without a tweet?
4-6 hrs.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
What do you consider an overshare? How much of your tweeting is done from a mobile device, which one?
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
Tie between @rainnwilson and @RobHuebel
Why'd you start tweeting?
The little twitteriffic icon for the iphone was so cute I figured I should check out what Twitter was. Been going ever since.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Twitter has done everything from helping put my youtube videos on national TV to getting me advice on snow tires!
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Spellchek
How will the world change in 2010?
We'll have iPads. And we'll know what it's like to spend $600 on an iPad and drop it down a flight of concrete stairs. That'll rock.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
@replying when you mean to DM and retweeting when you mean to quote. And geotagging yourself in a public restroom.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Privacy will be a thing of the past. Our lives will be so public that nobody will notice.
