Twitter vs. Facebook:
Benincasa: Itâ€™s funny that it brings us access to people that we look up to, and then there are people who regard us in a similar light, who now have access to us. Then, if there are people who consider them that way… It turns out that actors and rappers and philanthropists and politicians who we all admire, they watch stupid TV also and listen to music. Itâ€™s a place where everybody can geek out. Thatâ€™s the place where I think â€“ itâ€™s the most immediate, direct interaction, moreso than Facebook. Thereâ€™s no limit to it; youâ€™re limited on Facebook, but on Twitter I have about 10,500 followers. Then I look at people who have a billion [followers] and Iâ€™m like, â€śHoly shit, what happens?â€ť Every time you tweet something, someone responds.
Avery: Facebook is a much lazier, more â€śehh, Iâ€™ll just check thisâ€ť kind of thing, whereas on Twitter somethingâ€™s always happening. Tweets are always coming. Itâ€™s become a thing where so much of whatâ€™s going on now… It feels like youâ€™re in a big room with a bunch of people. That kind of makes it fun. So, you could be standing next to your best friend that youâ€™ve known for ten years, or you could be standing next to frigginâ€™ Axl Rose or Shaquille Oâ€™Neal. Thatâ€™s what makes it exciting. I canâ€™t think of any weird or negative Twitter experiences.
