The Shorty Interview
with Iludium Phosdex
What's your best tweet?
Just try to avoid ROFLYAO when you say "Mysore Sandal Soap"==> http://bit.ly/4FaXMF RT @engrishfunny RT @engrishdotcom RT @failads
What are six things you could never do without?
An Internet connexion, my blog, iced Rooibos tea, some time in Wisconsin Dells, likewise at the Minnesota State Fair and pizza.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Twitter or Facebook?
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
I'm new at this, so can't really fathom it out.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Reggie Belafonte, the wisearse surf promoter from the movie "Surf's Up."
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
That's a rather trying question, to put it mildly.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
I've unfollowed a few for spammy-sounding tweets, esp. of the suspiciously-glowing sort.
Why should we vote for you?
I'm a newbie, my blog is a bit esoteric, and I can use all the attention I can get. Especially after the years of "therapeutic" abuse.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
High-speed rail, mutual self-help as empowering the poor, TV alternatives, Wisconsin Dells
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Ricky Martin being among my followers.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
How do you make your tweets unique?
Using puns, snarky wordplay and allusion (especially when I tweet on behalf of my Amazon.com affiliate relationship)
What inspires you to tweet?
The need to speak out in as creative a way as you can. As well as a pressing desire to address the day's issues.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
No. Thank G-d.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Just try to be yourself.
How long can you go without a tweet?
Tough question.
Why'd you start tweeting?
I went Twitter to complement a weblog I already have.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
I'm new to the tweeting game, especially in its potential as adjunct to a blog I already have.
How will the world change in 2010?
That's a pretty fickle one to figure out, if you ask me.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Appealing to the basest of patriotic emotions, overdoing it on the glowing generalities in selling cheapjack, that sort of thing.
