Tweetdeck by a long way, would be lost without it.
Twitter or Facebook?
Twitter although Facebook becomes more Twitter like everyday, we feed updates to Facebook from our twitter Account saves time.

Pass what is funny to one isn't so funny to someone else Twitter trends can go both ways very easily.

Verified accounts for charities.. seriously overlooked and much needed feature.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
I wish everyone had a Twitter account then the lines of communication would truly be open to all.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Im Dyslexic so your lucky if i get the words in the right order, i shorten everything i can as long as its still readble.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
People are welcome to follow us or not we have no aspirations to be followed by anyone in particular.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Yes I have, sorry won't say not in the spirit of our work, for being spammy or a noisey

How do you make your tweets unique?
Personality, don't be a droid be a Human that means Typos, funny asides and offtopic tweets for real Twitter success.
What inspires you to tweet?
Our followers and our cause, Twitter empowers me to reach a wider group of people than any advert ever could and the conversations brilliant
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Yes from time to time, we feed our external services into Twitter (Every user created poster) which at times causes tweeple overload
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Remember safety first online, have fun, communicate and get involved in the conversations just don't share to much personal stuff!
How long can you go without a tweet?
An hour or so depends on my mood, lots of coffee and its about 32 seconds...
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
List time: @RachelBeer @HowardLake @Mazi @Dogstrust @NationalTrust and seriously their's so many its unfair to pick one they all rock
Why'd you start tweeting?
Because Twitter was the next big thing, and now it is. Great reward lots of lovely tweeple to chat
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
I sleep less now :-) But seriously Twitter has helped Bullying UK reach a huge audience of really caring Tweeple.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Retweet and click links isn't that everyones answer... ok then also tweet us to chat always happy to chat.
How will the world change in 2010?
Mobile web will finally explode (about time) Twitter will dominate and Facebook will probably do a redesign or 3 :-)
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Not responding to people tweets, not saying thanks for retweets, being overly spammy (theirs a line I think) and much more
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Still here I hope...
