The Shorty Interview
with Andy Koehn
What are six things you could never do without?
Books, beer, friends, me, my kids, my future, family
What's your favorite Twitter app?
HootSuite
Twitter or Facebook?
Facebook but Twitter is coming on strong for me.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
Not sure it's funny...yet...but I have this feeling tweeting quotes will get old soon.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
People who are caregivers/partners in a cancer home...or anyone just feeling that life is hardly worth it.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Yep. Someone who digs herself a little too much...
Why should we vote for you?
People tell me I'm an inspirational type for people who don't particularly like inspirational types:)
How do you make your tweets unique?
I just talk like me...
What inspires you to tweet?
My wife's stage iv breast cancer battle...and the aftermath. There is so much to experience in this life. I don't intend to miss it.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Nope.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
I don't like following just for the sake of following. Take that with a grain of salt because I'm NOT the Twitter King.
How long can you go without a tweet?
Days if I feel like it. (Lately it's like 10 minutes though. I might have a problem...)
What question are we not asking here that we should?
Shoe size? I don't know...
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
@raevenwestern she's just so cool...
Why'd you start tweeting?
I'm a curious sort.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Yes. I've "met" people who have honestly helped me get through my wife's passing.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Be original...real...tweet their own stuff. There are smart people in this world who aren't on the cover of magazines.
How will the world change in 2010?
It's changing today. Forget the whole year.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
"Hey! Look at me! Look at me!"
