The Shorty Interview
with Insider Perks
What's your best tweet?
The one I haven't sent yet.
What are six things you could never do without?
Travel, Family, Food, Education, Knowledge, Kids
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
That's all I use Twitter for.. Insider Perks.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Twitter or Facebook?
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
I don't really follow the trends.
What feature should Twitter add?
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Can't think of anyone off the top of my head.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
If I unfollowed someone then they were probably inactive or refused to engage in conversation :)
Why should we vote for you?
Because Insider Perks creates very unique and valuable content. We serve a huge need and have fun doing it :)
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Hard to single out just one. There are a few business deals that have gone down because of Twitter though.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
Never created a hashtag of my own.
How do you make your tweets unique?
Offer original content, news stories, opinionated takes.
What inspires you to tweet?
Business.. There isn't a more interesting answer sorry :)
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Don't follow random people, follow people who interest you. Even if they don't follow you back, you get value from their tweets.
How long can you go without a tweet?
As long as necessary..
What question are we not asking here that we should?
Are you sick of all these questions yet?
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
I don't.. That way I'm surprised when they do.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That it's a full fledged social network or a competitor of Facebook.
Why should people follow you?
I try to tweet relevant industry information from the world of travel and tourism, I always respond to conversations and interact.
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
I follow travel related accounts so in that field there really isn't anyone in particular that is one-of-a-kind.
How do you decide what to tweet?
What I feel will be relevant to my audience.
Why'd you start tweeting?
To promote my business.. Insider Perks.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Not really. Perhaps made it easier.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
How will the world change in the next year?
Besides the economy getting better and some jobs coming back, one can never tell specifics.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Not responded to questions asked of you via @ reply is probably the one I can't personally stand the most.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
