The Cast
When did you join Twitter?
  • HENDERSON

    March, 2009

  • MEREDITH

    November, 2011

  • TEIGEN

    May 11, 2009. I didn't just know that, I promise. I had to look it up on a website!

  • AGDAL

    November, 2011

Who introduced you to Twitter?
  • HENDERSON

    I cant remember; it was over 3 years ago.

  • MEREDITH

    Friends/managers.

  • TEIGEN

    Not sure. God?

  • AGDAL

    Most of the friends I met in America use Twitter and they told me about it.

How often do you check Twitter?
  • HENDERSON

    Depends on the day. I always check Twitter when I'm in a cab so it all depends on how many taxis I take in a day.

  • MEREDITH

    When the red light blinks on my phone lol ... or if I'm in a taxi and bored.

  • TEIGEN

    It varies. If I'm working, rarely. If I'm not, anywhere between every 30 seconds to every 10 minutes. Oh, sad.

  • AGDAL

    Everyday, like six times a day

Do you respond to people you don't know?
  • HENDERSON

    Not normally but sometimes I am feeling generous and feel like responding.

  • MEREDITH

    Yes, if they congratulate me on something and seem friendly. Gotta love the tweeps!

  • TEIGEN

    All the time! Especially when they're funny. The crazy part is I would consider some people "my friends" when I have never met them. If you talk to someone every day for three years, you kinda feel that way!

  • AGDAL

    Yes, thats one of the fun things about it. It's an easy way just to chat with people about everything.

My three favorite people to follow?
  • HENDERSON

    @FunnyFacts, @Sh--ModelsSay, and @ChrissyTeigen (she's always up to no good)

  • MEREDITH

    @missjillscott, @misshollistics, @Sports Illustrated

  • TEIGEN

    @JennyJohnsonhi5, @Jennyandteets, @RobDelaney, @MeganAmram, @ColinHanks, @DamienFahey

  • AGDAL

    @ChrissyTeigen (her tweets are hilarious or she posts picture of food. Yum.); Fitness (posts about health, motivation and staying in shape. It actually motivates me sometimes to go to the gym and not eat that pizza in front of me. Even though the opposite happens, too); Dalai Lama (he is one wise man and always makes me think about depper perspectives in life).

Three people you wouldn't think I follow are...
  • HENDERSON

    @FillWerrell, @ChrisMannixSI, and @YesImWaspy

  • MEREDITH

    Didn't answer

  • TEIGEN

    VanillaIce, The Rock, a penguin.

  • AGDAL

    DJ Mark Knight. I follow a lot of DJs. I think they are almost the only musicians I follow. I love electronic music, so I like to see what everyone is up to!). The Miami Heat. You might not know this but I am huge into basketball and it's an easy way to stay updated since I dont spend much time in Miami or am on a laptop).

Have you ever met a celebrity/athlete through Twitter?
  • HENDERSON

    Never

  • MEREDITH

    No

  • TEIGEN

    Definitely.

  • AGDAL

    I have been in contact with a lot of people on Twitter; some of them you could probably call celebrities.

One person you wish was on Twitter?
  • HENDERSON

    No one. Everyone is on Twitter now.

  • MEREDITH

    Don't be silly. Everyone is on Twitter:)

  • TEIGEN

    I truly cannot think of an answer for this.

  • AGDAL

    I can't think of anyone.

Have you ever been in a Twitter feud?
  • HENDERSON

    I have had people try and start feuds but I never respond to them.

  • MEREDITH

    No. I don't entertain ignorance.

  • TEIGEN

    Are you kidding? That IS my twitter.

  • AGDAL

    No. If someone says something negative or if I don't agree, I've kept a low profile. I don't see anything good coming out of it. I don't have the energy for that kind of drama. But I think it can be fun to see someone else discuss!
