The Shorty Interview
with Severe Studios
What are six things you could never do without?
Tornadoes, storms, cars, internet, radar, camera.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
Notify people of severe weather in their area. Update locations of storm chasers. Alert people to the best LIVE video.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
It used to be TweetDeck until the new version. Now Seesmic.
Twitter or Facebook?
Both are great for different things. Somebody once said, "Facebook is for the people you know, Twitter is for the people you WISH you knew".
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
The rise of "fake" accounts. Loved the Bronx Zoo's Cobra.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
tornado, tornado watch, tornado warning... and names of counties :)
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
@AlRoker You'd think with our @weatherchannel contacts, we could get that done!
Why should we vote for you?
We let the world see tornadoes LIVE!
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
How do you make your tweets unique?
We try to be first, current, relevant, and accurate.
What inspires you to tweet?
Talking to 10,000+ people about a subject that affects everyone: Weather.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Only during tornado outbreaks!
How long can you go without a tweet?
Why'd you start tweeting?
To keep people informed on severe weather and give updates on the activities of our storm chasers.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I do is check Twitter for the news.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Tweet about active weather in their area... with photos.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Tweeting things that a majority of your followers won't at least say "huh, that's interesting".
