What are six things you could never do without?
Air, food, water, sleep, my family, a toilet and toilet paper.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I try to use it in blogs & in some app development. I figure the more people that listen to me the more I have to help me out someday :-)
What's your favorite Twitter app?
@TwitNerdApps follow friday app
Twitter or Facebook?
twitter for the world, facebook for friends.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
Chris Brown :-P
What feature should Twitter add?
It would be cool to see a feature that shows how much penetration your tweets have. Be nice to see how many people possibly saw a tweet
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
A REAL psychic that can see the future. Or an alien from another planet :-)
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
All are fair game in my book.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
I asked Alyssa Milano but that didn't work :-( Maybe someday she will :-) Ocho Cinco (Chad Johnson) would be cool to have as a follower
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Yes quite a few. I use to think follower count was important then realized it wasn't, so I unfollowed people that tweeted garbage.
Why should we vote for you?
Well I am a cool person, and I haven't really seen anyone who consistently tweets weird and bizarre news.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
My name would be cool :-)
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
I met someone that lives in the same city and knows a buddy of mine. Complete coincidence.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
How do you make your tweets unique?
I tweet the most bizarre & weird news happening now. Hence #WTFnews.
What inspires you to tweet?
Not really sure, maybe recognition? I just like reading weird news so figured others would too.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
I have on follow fridays before, which is why I like that app I mentioned :-)
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Don't worry about follower count, you want people to actually read your tweets!
How long can you go without a tweet?
I could go forever but I don't have to :-)
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
Hospitals, especially children's hospitals. Those that use it are helping their community more then they will ever know.
Why'd you start tweeting?
I like to be cutting-edge :-)
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
It has but only in time consumption. I was diggin social media before social media was cool :-)
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Read my tweets!
How will the world change in 2010?
We are moving to a time where all communication and entertainment will be net streamed.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
SPAM! I also dont' dig those tweeps that get mad because you unfollowed them.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Personal computing will become just that, people will be totally connected to everything anytime thanks to the net and wireless development
