The Shorty Interview
with Lora R Fisher
What are six things you could never do without?
Aside from food, water, and shelter, there is little that I can do without. Oh, you mean the Internet. Right ... .
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Hooked on Hootesuite!
Twitter or Facebook?
What feature should Twitter add?
Twitter long-form ... or does that already exist somewhere?
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Wll shrtn ne wrd if necssry.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Yes. For being rude and self-righteous.
Why should we vote for you?
Because I'm not the most obvious ?
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
It was nice when Steve Martin replied to one of my tweets, but I wouldn't actually call that a 'connection'.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
How do you make your tweets unique?
I tweet 'Live', topical comments & responses relating to the arts and creativity, with a salty dusting of politics to mix it up.
What inspires you to tweet?
I'm inspired by people who get to the heart of the matter through writing, music, politics, humor, and the visual arts.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Be brave. Follow smart people. Think for yourself.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
If you could do one thing that would help the most people at one time, what would it be?
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
@GottaLaff perhaps. @NinaTypewriter is another gangbusters tweeter.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
Why should people follow you?
For my surprising sense of humor, no doubt.
How do you decide what to tweet?
There are too many answers to that question.
Why'd you start tweeting?
My friend @TheBuzzByBrian convinced me that I just *had* to start tweeting. I've never looked back.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Yes, definitely. My world has expanded and my perspective has shifted, with friends and connections around the world and across the U.S.
How will the world change in the next year?
Greater awareness that we are all in this together.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
RT-ing inanities and RT-ing without knowing your source. Belligerence and lack of respect. Taking yourself too seriously.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
It will either be 10 years better or 10 years worse.
