Last year, I spoke at the 140tc in Los Angeles and had an amazing time. One of the best panels there was a celebrity panel put on by Dr. Drew. He lead the panel of: Tony Hawk, Loni Love LeVar Burton and others to discuss how they use Twitter. Afterward, I got to spend some time with Dr. Drew. I discussed with him, one thing that he had not asked. “Why they use Twitter and what is in it for the celebrity.” He agreed and stated he had tried to get them to comment on it, but none of them would go there. This has always stuck with me.
So, that discussion has taking me here to this. Something I want to try. Interviewing others about their use of not just Twitter, because there is more to social media then just Twitter, but social networks, online branding, blogging, communities, and lots more.
I started by producing an interview with Heroes creator Tim Kring using Second Life last month. I moved on to a short interview with Yvette Nicole Brown of the tv show Community. Which brings me to the next interview I am going to do with actor Lou Diamond Phillips.
For this interview, I plan on recording the interview and posting here on the site. Nothing daring or out of the box I know. What I want to do is ask questions about his use of social networking sites, interactions with his community and such.
…But I need your help!
Lou has agreed to let me get the questions ahead of time from online communities or via my blog. As he put it, ” I think it is a great idea to include the Twitterverse.”
So, what would you like to ask actor Lou Diamond Phillips? Here let me give you some ideas. I will do it in list form, becuase people like lists:
- How and why he uses Twitter.
-His online interactions with fans.
-Why he is not on Facebook.
-Maybe about his SyFy tv show Stargate Universe which just finished season 1.
-It could be about something about La Bamba, Stand and Deliver, Young Guns, his stage work or even his poker skills
- His recurring role on Criminal Minds
I need your help to make this awesome! So bring it!
So leave a question here, send me a Tweet, leave it on Facebook.. heck email me. I will need them by June 25, 2010 and of course I will give you credit for the question!
Thanks in advance for your help.
