The Shorty Interview
with Sean Plott
What's your best tweet?
Starbucks trolling: "Your name?" "Sean." "Spelled how?" "S-C-H-A-U-G-H-W-N-E." Barista sounded like she re-read my name in slow motion.
Twitter or Facebook?
I prefer Facebook as it encourages participation between large groups of people in more ways. Facebook feels more like a community.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
My life goal is for eSports / competitive gaming to become a household entertainment form in the West. I'd love to see #eSports EVERYWHERE!
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
If it's "Level One Funny," it's funny right now. But, If it's #LevelTwoFunny, it's not funny right now, but will be funny later.
How do you make your tweets unique?
My tweets are quite varied: humor, links, comments on community news etc. I want my tweets to stimulate discussion, interaction, or laughter
What inspires you to tweet?
I have an insatiable desire to tell stories. The problem solver in me loves boiling an experience down to a 140 character tale.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Try to say things longer than 140 characters. The process of crunching it down will help you learn the art and joy of precise word choice.
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
Incorporating better methods for presenting other media: pictures, video, etc. Users already try to bend the pure text restriction to do more
Why should people follow you?
As someone who's grown up in the gaming community, I feel like followers/viewers are my friends. So, I talk/tweet to you in that way! :D
Why'd you start tweeting?
I enjoyed my live web show since I could interact with the gaming community. I began tweeting as another fun way to interact with viewers.
How will the world change in the next year?
With the ease of using new media technology, more individuals can produce and distribute quality content with no restriction.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Complaining or venting is the worst Twitter offense! Though it might feel good, complaining distracts from tweets about valuable content!
