The Shorty Interview
with Julie K
What's your best tweet?
after literally thousands I couldn't possibly single out one - that's up to others!
What are six things you could never do without?
My family, my iphone, hugs, a cup of tea, a swiss army knife, cake.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
As a full time mum I don't have a 'professional life' as such but I use it to hopefully inspire others on to a green way of life
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Tweetdeck - I can see all that's going on in one screen
Twitter or Facebook?
both!
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
#keepfits from @henryandfriends a weekly keep fit 'class' for anipals and humans.
What feature should Twitter add?
Actually I love twitter just as it is!
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Wouldn't it be interesting to engage with HRH Prince Charles on green issues? Oh and Hugh Fearnley-Wittingstall
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
anything that makes me look like a teenager! So U and R but I take each tweet on its own merit - sometimes the message needs to get out
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
I'm not in to 'celebrity' unless they lead genuinely interesting lives. So no one particularly; just people who make me smile and are real
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
I unfollow rude or crude folk and those who do nothing but sell one thing or another and don't engage with people - hate bots!
Why should we vote for you?
Gosh! Well have a look at the blog! We're an ordinary family and if we can be green then we hope we can inspire you to have a go too!
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
can't think of anything so far but will get back to you if I do
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Probably our local radio station @106jackfm - we've become genuine real life friends.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#domesticmonday - for the day when you get your home up together ( home is important - not just a sleeping place)
How do you make your tweets unique?
by trying to add humour and word play to the seemingly ordinary that is my life
What inspires you to tweet?
literally what I'm doing. To me its ordinary, but I've learnt that to others it inspires them to have a go to
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
no! But I do have to explain on Facebook every so often why there are so many status updates as its linked *oops*
140 characters of advice for a new user?
absolutely be yourself and don't worry about follower numbers,. Slow and steady growth is better and more likely to be sustainable
How long can you go without a tweet?
oh hours if I'm busy ;-) but its integral to my life so that doesn't happen often
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
@Henryandfriends he's so warm and friendly and takes time to answer everyone
Why'd you start tweeting?
Curious about it really - how it worked and what I could get out of it
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Its opened doors - we've met so many people through it who have become genuine friends in real life
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
be themselves - that's more than enough to sell anything
How will the world change in 2010?
I suspect in grim directions but lets keep the hope that we will finally get the green ideas and start to change culture and society
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
repeatedly plugging links in tweets - some accounts are just that. So boring and I'm more in to real people and their lives
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
I hope it'll be a place were we are all responsible for our lifestyles - grow, produce and make what we can, and serve our communities.
