The Shorty Interview
with Erin Sanders
What's your best tweet?
I've posted a few good ones expressing my support for gay marriage, which my followers responded very well to... Made me very happy.
What are six things you could never do without?
Human connection, love, intimacy, food, and water. As long as I have these, I'm pretty sure I could survive just about anything.
What feature should Twitter add?
It would be cool if you could make words searchable. If you know you're referencing something unusual, you'd make it link to a Google search.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
@NathonFillion is a damn handsome man (& I worked on Castle). Also, @ChloeGMoretz. I dressed up as Hit Girl for Halloween & kind of love her.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Usually only when I've followed them briefly so they could DM me. I've escaped unfollowing before by turning off my ability to see their RTs.
Why should we vote for you?
Because I try to be very honest with my followers, about things that actually matter, and to motivate them to be their best selves.
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
I use Twitter mostly to communicate with my fans, and I have made so many friends this way, in countries around the world. It's remarkable
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
Well, I'm probably the wrong person to ask... I still refuse to switch over to "New Twitter." What can I say? I'm a creature of habit.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
Those who use it to bring lots of attention to charities, and those who's timelines are a never-faltering string of witticisms.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That it's a home for self-absorbed people to babble on about every sip of water they take, to people who don't care. People care. Kidding!
Why'd you start tweeting?
Peer pressure. I think my first tweet even mentioned something about succumbing to it.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
I have less free time and more people to share my daily insights with. If I'm ever feeling down, all I have to do is log on to feel the love.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Be candid! It's dishonest to make it seem like your life is bubblegum & rainbows all the time. Also, omit the meaningless stuff.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Considering the fact that I can now hear news fastest by checking Twitter on my iPhone, God only knows...
