The Shorty Interview
with Wendy Shepherd ♥
What's your best tweet?
It's hard to choose, but if I had to, I'd pick an inspiring one.
What are six things you could never do without?
Family, friends, pets, chocolate, hot tea, and computer.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I use it to share news, events and updates with fans of people I help. I also network and connect with new people often.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Twitter or Facebook?
Both because I know different people in each place.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
#epicfail ...but it's the description that is used with the trending topic most of the time that makes it funny.
What feature should Twitter add?
Easier ways to allow for verification of talented people and celebrities by them directly or by the people who represent them.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Almost all of them except for short ones like "with" can be "w/" and I like to shorten dates/times.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
The inspiring @iansomerhalder
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
I can't tell.. it'd be rude.
Why should we vote for you?
I represent some cool talented people. Voting for me is like voting for them! :)
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
The Hobbit is in theaters now! (not they're taking The Hobbits to Isengard) :) #TheHobbitRules
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Do I have to choose just one? Not fair! How about the most recent one? @ChadLindberg
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
How do you make your tweets unique?
I talk as a real person, unless I'm posting news, events, etc.
What inspires you to tweet?
The little train that could...
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
No. But it could happen one day... I try to keep tweets spread out and DM people more than @ them.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Ask for help if you need it. Many people are willing to offer assistance. Also, check out the Twitter support area: https://support.twitter.com/
How long can you go without a tweet?
Several days... depending on what's going on or if I've been abducted by aliens for a while... then I tweet up again upon my return.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
Hmm... let me look at a crystal ball..
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
I can't choose just one... I'd say @iansomerhalder & @seanflanery for sharing inspiring, helpful, fun, tweets with everyone!
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
Just one funny person? How about more? @SeanFlanery and @CrashDisaster they crack me up!
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
Many people seem to think if they post something that ALL of their followers will read it, comment about it, and share it.
Why should people follow you?
Let's do that Yoda style: "Should people follow you, why?" .. so we can be Jedi masters together.
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
How do you decide what to tweet?
I think about what my followers might be interested in... or I just can't wait to share some news.
Why'd you start tweeting?
I was curious about Twitter and knew some friends were using it.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
I've met some amazing new people through Twitter that I may have never known otherwise.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Think positive. Share inspiring things.
How will the world change in the next year?
Things will get better in the next year. Make it so.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Airing personal problems, stalking, and being disrespectful.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
It will be what people make it or what they allow it to be.
