The Shorty Interview
with Ryan Holmes
What's your best tweet?
Paper towels!? I'm going to bed.
What are six things you could never do without?
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I use it to spread the word about upcoming guests and exciting news regarding the radio show.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Twitter or Facebook?
Personally, Facebook. Professionaly, Twitter.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
Not sure it's funny haha, but Omarion had quite an odd day recently.
What feature should Twitter add?
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
My hilarious h.s. friend Sonesinh.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Yes, but it was never anything personal.
Why should we vote for you?
We all like to be entertained. Our show has rapidly become one of the most popular internet radio shows in the world. We listen to our fans.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
How do you make your tweets unique?
With hashtags like #SexyGargoyles, #cupcakesandrangerovers, and #BarbaraFreakinRyan, how could my tweets not be unique? :)
What inspires you to tweet?
Promoting my guests and their projects. I like to support the arts.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Being nice goes a long way. Don't get caught up in the rudeness that can take place. #haterstotheleft Use Twitter to shout out what you love.
How long can you go without a tweet?
Three days. But, it's not ideal. That causes a huge backup on retweets.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
Is it tweeted or twatted?
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
I imagine it becoming more accessible in terms of media files. For instance, maybe there will be photo albums and video collections.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
David Lowry @lowryagency
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That all it is is Facebook status updates.
Why should people follow you?
They'll find out who's coming on the show. They can suggest guests to me. It's really been a beautifully interactive thing so far.
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
How do you decide what to tweet?
I mostly tweet instintively. Or, if someone says something funny or interesting, I retweet it. They call me #ReTweetRyan
Why'd you start tweeting?
I started to promote BlazinRy Radio.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Yes, I can effectively communicate w/ my listeners and they have easy access to me.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Relax. There's no sense in begging or yelling at people.
How will the world change in the next year?
Verizon will have an iPhone.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Demanding and exclaiming that one follow another.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
We will tweet on our flying cars... When will we ever get those flying cars?
