The Shorty Interview
with Brad Panovich WCNC
What's your best tweet?
OMG we just had @wxbaby2 on the living room floor, Not Kidding!
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
Twitter is my #1 method to inform my viewers about severe weather on their terms. The weather happens 24/7 364 and with Twitter so am I.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Tweetdeck on my PC and Tweetbot on my iphone.
Twitter or Facebook?
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Yes, mainly because they were being mean to my other followers.
What inspires you to tweet?
My passion for weather and the feedback I get from my followers.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Have fun and try to connect with people that you don't know and don't be afraid to go to a Tweetup!
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
I think it will replace texting as the main method of short communications.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
@spann for his amazing severe weather coverage.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
Why should people follow you?
Because I'm always looking out for you and the weather will never surprise you.
Why'd you start tweeting?
To get weather information out during a snowstorm in 2009.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Engage with strangers, some do but more discovery would be awesome.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Replying when you meant to DM and using super long annoying hashtags than are meaningless.
