The Shorty Interview
with Jim Moriarty
What's your best tweet?
In the beginning, God created Heaven and Earth. Everything else was made in China.
What are six things you could never do without?
1. Money. 2. Semtex (the explosive kind) 3. Sarcasm. 4. Chewing gum. 5. Twitter (Embarrassing, isn't it?)
What's your favorite Twitter app?
TwitBot. Is that what it's called? OH! TweetBot? I've got it now.
Twitter or Facebook?
Twitter. Facebook is dangerous.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
#ImABelieber - I'm a belieber and I wouldn't leave her if I trieieieied. And then I saw her faaaccccceeeeeeeee, now I'm a BELIEBER! Heyy! (8)
What feature should Twitter add?
'Colour text', 'Font changer', and 'peck people to death' button.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Andrew Scott because he is Irish. And he looks a HELL of a lot like me.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
No, I haven't unfollowed anyone. I'm Professor Moriarty. I follow everyone. Well, I don't. My henchmen do.
Why should we vote for you?
You should vote for me because I'm not ordinary. Unlike everyone else.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
How do you make your tweets unique?
How can I not make my tweets unique? With a unique mind like mine, nothing's normal.
What inspires you to tweet?
Knowing that I'll be getting lovely comments after the tweet. It does make me smile! (Yes, I do mean it) Until one tweeter decides to SPAM!
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
No, never! In fact, the more I tweet, the more they enjoy them! They're needy, needy Twitter users. God bless them.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
1. Don't be mean to people. This isn't facebook. 2. Follow me, or I'll turn you into shoes and SKIN you.
How long can you go without a tweet?
I don't know. I haven't really tried to see how long I could go without tweeting. It'll be like giving up smoking! Very difficult!
What question are we not asking here that we should?
"Would you rather be forgotten or hatefully remembered?"
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
The way I WANT it to change.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
*Cough, cough* @ItsMrSherlock.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
@ItsTheDoctor, @ItsMrSherlock & @ItsDrWatson. I once strapped a bomb to him. He didn't seem to enjoy it as much as I enjoyed it, though.
Why should people follow you?
They should follow me because I am Moriarty. I'll burn you, and skin you, not forgetting that I'll make you into shoes if you don't.
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
@ItsDrWatson, @ItsDI_Lestrade and @ItsMrSherlock. They're all unique and they look good running after me ;)
How do you decide what to tweet?
I just tweet whatever pops up in my head, really. I'm a genius.
Why'd you start tweeting?
Because I got bored one day. Besides, twitter seemed to be a better option than Facebook.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
It allows me to contact John and Sherlock much easier than little riddles, notes etc.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Follow legends. Like I, for example.
How will the world change in the next year?
Let's just say I'll be very active next year. Watch out, Grannies!
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Allowing idiotic people to join Twitter.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Scary. The children would be looking like zombies on their technology!
