[In which we find out the Twitter philosophies of my most beloved follows.]

Twitter username: @IsaacFitzgerald
Real name: Isaac Fitzgerald
Recent memorable tweet: “Why in the fuck was I Googling “Bud Light Lime”?”

How often do you tweet? Do you limit yourself to a number of tweets per day, or to a certain time of day? Any other OCD-like tweeting tendencies?

I try to compose only a few tweets a day. Aside from @fucktyler, I really hate it when someone fills my feed up with back-to-back tweets. The only time I am guilty of doing this myself is when I tells longer stories. My longest ever was six:

I guess what I’m trying to say is, I’m a hypocrite?

What is your ‘follow’ philosophy? Do you follow everyone who follows you? Do you follow celebrities, lit mags, ex-boyfriends?

I follow friends who I know in person, or whose tweets educate me in some way or entertain me in some way. The best are the ones that do both. That’s why I don’t follow @dalailama yet. Dude needs more jokes.

What is your @ philosophy? Do you tweet people back, engage in ‘chit chat,’ become annoyed when others do?

I try to keep my stream clear, but I find that goal difficult when I get drunk and lonely. Wait, did I just make a pee joke? A kind of sad one?

What is your #hashtag philosophy?, which I posted after posting:

Do you obsess about number of: followers / retweets / favorites / unfollows / other?

I once woke up after a blackout night with a number written on my hand. It was only four  digits. It took me a minute to figure out that I hadn’t screwed up taking down a bar lady’s number, but that it was my number of followers. I had tweeted something stupid while drunk and apparently wanted to compare that number with the number of followers I had the next day to see if it had offended people.

So… yes. Wow. Is this interview secretly a twitter intervention?

How do you think you come across to your followers? How would you like to come across?


What do you want people to remember about your Twitter account?

Oh man, I’d much rather they remembered the capitals of the states or where I left my keys last night.
