The Shorty Interview
with SamuelPeralta Poetry
What's your best tweet?
For you I wish that these poems were rubies, borne by my own caravan from Xi'an out of Shaanxi, through Persia, along the northern Silk Road.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
My favorite Twitter app - so far - is Twitter itself.
Twitter or Facebook?
I stream and link poetry on both, but for some reason I get a bigger reader response via Twitter.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
When Vampire Diaries was trending, some readers confused it for my Vampire Sonnets series, and congratulated me on trending!
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Yes, her favorite poet is Edna St. Vincent Millay.
Why should we vote for you?
Poetry, as a relatively short-bandwidth art form with high-bandwidth impact, is a natural fit for Twitter, and should be recognized as such.
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
I've made connections with incredible writers who have both inspired me and challenged me to set a higher bar for my own work.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Twitter helped my poetry gain a wider readership than I achieved with all my previous print or web publications.
