I was an early adopter of live Twitter interviews (twitterviews), long before George Stephanopoulos popularized the concept by chatting with Senator John McCain in 140 character bursts.
My first Twitter interview with with social media consultant Joseph Jaffe on October 10, 2008. Since then, I’ve conducted regular Twitter interviews with a series of social media luminaries, on an approximately twice monthly schedule.
The interview series is called Twitter 20 because I ask 20 questions during the sessions – which last approximately 90 minutes. The hash tag is #twt20 and I post transcripts of all interviews here.
I find the format to be very interesting and informative, as it cuts through the clutter and forces both interviewer and interviewee to be clear and concise. Some incredibly interesting insights have been offered as part of the Twitter 20 series.
