The Shorty Interview
with Bob Merrick™
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
To connect, engage, grow and build my audience for my radio show.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Laughing out loud. Can't do it.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Of course. There is such a thing as tweeting TOO much. But since one of the worst sites on the web is, my lips r sealed.
Why should we vote for you?
Because its time the people doing good get celebrated instead of the misbehavers and gossip mongrels.
How do you make your tweets unique?
I keep my thoughts to one tweet. No to be continueds...
What inspires you to tweet?
Staying connected with my Baubles
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Yes. We had David Archuleta on the show and played a trivia contest. There were a LOT of people who didn't care about his underwear preference.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
I think it's connectivity will continue as is, but I think at some point we will be able to expand our thoughts to 200 characters.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That there's no point to it and that people only use it to announce they're going to the bathroom.
Why should people follow you?
Because I won't gossip and I will try to always be kind to my audience and limit my complaining to driving in the car alone!
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Be kind and share the good news.
How will the world change in the next year?
Ratings for OWN will finally go up and the collective conscience will reflect the networks positive beliefs :-)
