The Shorty Interview
with Austin (Prime) Moore
What's your best tweet?
Oh man, I have almost 30,000 tweets! Want to go through them and find a good one? There are tons of great ones. :)
What are six things you could never do without?
Family, Friends, Internet, Computers, Music, Twitter, Food.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
It's one of my most important personal brand promoters. My main goal is to connect with my fans and Twitter gives me the ability to do so!
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Twitter or Facebook?
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
Well most of the 'funny' trending topics I see are annoying to me. I think they should be used for things that are happening now, not games.
What feature should Twitter add?
Call in phone tweeting! Wouldn't that be fun? I know there are apps to do it, but none of them have perfected the art. Not everyone texts!
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
My mom. Wouldn't that be great?!
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Everyone, you, and are. You'll rarely see me say stuff like every1, u, or, r.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Yes! Ryan Seacrest. He's my hero. :)
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Oh lord yes, hundreds of people. Usually spammers, foreign language tweeters, too frequent tweeters, and ugly people... Just kidding. :)
Why should we vote for you?
I would greatly appreciate this award. It would make me feel like all I have done is actually worth the time I've spent. This will be tough!
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
I've made lots of great connections with some local tweeters!
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
How do you make your tweets unique?
Well that's a good question. I don't really try to do anything, I just tweet the way I am.
What inspires you to tweet?
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Stick with Twitter for at least 1 week logging in & tweeting at least 3 times a day. Get involved with the community! It's not all about you!
How long can you go without a tweet?
Oh man. No more than a few hours. ;)
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
@Madmain. He REALLY knows his stuff!
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
All I need to say is... "BRB taking a pee!"
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
Why'd you start tweeting?
I joined back in 2007 because @MagicMattYo told me to. Mind you, this was back when @LeoLaporte only had 1,000 followers and he was #1!
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Very much so. Without Twitter I would not be even close to where I am with my jobs in the media!
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Communicate in their local communities.
How will the world change in the next year?
Well, hopefully it will be seeing a lot more of me!
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Hopefully not much different.
