The Shorty Interview
with Officer 808
What are six things you could never do without?
Unicorns, world peace, crystal balls, Santa, Journey's Greatest Hits CD, and a will to live.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Twitter or Facebook?
Twitter because I have a really short atten...hey look, something shiny!
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Primarily numbers and singular indefinite articles, like "a" or "an".
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Follow me because you want to follow me. I don't ask for follows, unless I want to borrow money from you.
Why should we vote for you?
Because I believe that children are the future, teach them well and let them lead the way.
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
I love to have international relations.
How do you make your tweets unique?
I try to "paraphrase" other people's tweets rather than straight up "plagiarize".
What inspires you to tweet?
Hawaii Five-0 and Grace Park.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Yes, all the time, the women can't get enough of me. Oh wait, you said "called out", not "asked out".
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Kiss your life goodbye!
How long can you go without a tweet?
I tweet constantly from my brain, but somehow, it never shows up in my feed.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That you can quit whenever you want to.
How do you decide what to tweet?
I ask my cats, they're fairly creative.
Why'd you start tweeting?
My parents never showed me enough attention, except that one Christmas they bought me the entire Star Wars toy line in 1977.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
When I go outside and see the big, glowing ball in the sky, I hiss at it, and then crawl back into the dark, comfy confines of my lair.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
I love to hear what people spread on their bagels.
