The Shorty Interview
with Lynn Hasselberger
What's your best tweet?
Any tweet that motivates people to take action or become involved in campaigns that help make the world a better place + gets RT'd.
What are six things you could never do without?
My son will concur: I would die without my daily smoothie, my computer and dark chocolate.
Twitter or Facebook?
Both twitter and facebook are essential to me. Hands down.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
I can't recall, but I used it at the tail end of a tree-planting campaign tweet to hopefully snag a few otherwise non-eco tweeps.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Yes. More than once. After getting a closer look at their photo and realizing they were--how shall I put this--possibly selling s-e-x. ;)
Why should we vote for you?
I want to make a difference for people + planet. All humans deserve clean air, clean water + safe food. I do tweet random, fun stuff too.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
#waterwednesday Almost a billion people lack acess to clean water and water shortages around the world are imminent. Water is life.
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
@minimonos -- an interactive sustainability game for kids around the world. The founders are in Australia. My son + I joined in beta phase.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#YourVoiceCounts ... at least I think I created it.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Be yourself. Tweet your passion. RT others who are authentic. #twip
How long can you go without a tweet?
I've been able to last a weekend without a tweet. I wrote about my tweet-aholic tendancies.
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
It has already done so much to connect people of all walks of life from all corners of the world + catalyze change. What more is there?
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
This may sound lame, but I've been inspired by many and would hate to exclude anyone. That just wouldn't be fair!
Why should people follow you?
To learn about #eco + #water issues + how to take action. Many things point back to my blog http://icountformy...
Why'd you start tweeting?
I started an online eco biz @myEARTH360 + someone told me I 'should' twee(LOL)! My tweeting has evolved in ways I could never have imagined.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Absolutely! Seeing twitter change the course of history, one tweet at a time, has made me realize I can make a difference. My voice counts.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
I've written about my own which you'll find here:
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
As long as we're able to keep our individual voices on the internet, it will be an amazing, sustainable planet. If not, we're in trouble.
