The Shorty Interview
with COLOURlovers
What's your best tweet?
Haven't sent it yet... I hope. We're continuing to improve the way we connect & share.
What are six things you could never do without?
Our Community. Creative People. The Internet. Computers. Color. Love.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
We use it to connect with our users, share interesting color-bits and try to inspire creativity.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
For iPhone it's Tweetie, but HootSuite is getting close to taking the top spot all around. (And self-servingly... Themeleon is pretty sweet)
Twitter or Facebook?
Right now Twitter is winning. Facebook fan pages / groups just aren't feeling as connected... maybe we're doing it wrong.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
Funny haha... or funny sad? Because I see a lot more of the latter.
What feature should Twitter add?
...Themeleon? Aww, that was a set-up.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Waialea Bay, Puako Hawaii: Tides / Surf Report / Sunset Colors / Temperature...
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
you, would, could, are, why...
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
@MarthaStewart I think she'd like what we're doing.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
People we follow because they look interesting... and then we realize they're just a bot or spam account... be it pretty interesting ones.
Why should we vote for you?
Because we built an app that seamlessly integrates into the Twitter experience and provides a really easy way to make that experience better
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
@francesca / We delivered fresh & delicious cookies to the Twitter offices... and she still didn't let us in.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
How do you make your tweets unique?
We try and add some of our fun and positive culture from our community in every tweet.
What inspires you to tweet?
Colorful finds in my daily life or from the web. So much great stuff out there.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Have been called out for tweeting too much compared to replying... but we maintain a pretty decent ratio between the two.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Grab some of the great Twitter tools / apps that are our there. Makes engaging and participating a whole lot easier and more enjoyable.
How long can you go without a tweet?
I COULD go forever without a tweet... but I wouldn't WANT to.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
What other nominee we think should win in our category and why.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
@THE_REAL_SHAQ He uses twitter to share his quirky personality and he does a great job responding to fans.
Why'd you start tweeting?
So we could share the color love with an even wider audience. Friends relay a message from us to their friends... and so grows the community
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
It's let me connect on a more personal level with people all over the world... ones I might not have discovered otherwise.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Share their deeper insights or perspectives on meaningful parts of their lives.
How will the world change in the next year?
I hope it grows out of a negative space and into a creative space. There are amazingly talented people and they can change the world.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Auto DM'ing what is supposed to be a "personal" message... is probably my least favorite thing.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Well, we for dang sure better have those pink Mattel Hover Boards... & I hope it's a place where less people are hurting, hungry, sick & sad.
