The Twitter Grid: Swimsuit Edition
We asked a group of SI swimsuit models about their experiences on Twitter. Here's how they responded:
When did you join Twitter?
TEIGENMay 11, 2009. I didn't just know that, I promise. I had to look it up on a website!
Who introduced you to Twitter?
HENDERSONI can't remember. It was over three years ago.
MEREDITHFriends and managers.
TEIGENNot sure. God?
AGDALMost of the friends I've met in America use Twitter and they told me about it.
How often do you check Twitter?
HENDERSONDepends 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.
MEREDITHWhen the red light blinks on my phone (lol!). Or if I'm in a taxi and bored.
TEIGENIt varies. If I'm working, rarely. If I'm not, anywhere between every 30 seconds to every 10 minutes. Oh, sad.
AGDALEveryday ... like six times a day.
Do you respond to people you don't know?
HENDERSONNot normally but sometimes I am feeling generous and will respond.
MEREDITHYes, if they congratulate me on something and seem friendly. Gotta love the tweeps!
TEIGENAll 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!
AGDALYes, that's 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?
Three people you wouldn't think I follow are...
Have you ever met a celebrity/athlete through Twitter?
AGDALI 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?
HENDERSONNo one. Everyone is on Twitter now.
MEREDITHDon't be silly. Everyone is on Twitter:)
TEIGENI truly cannot think of an answer for this.
AGDALI can't think of anyone.
Have you ever been in a Twitter feud?
HENDERSONI've had people try and start feuds but I've never responded to them.
MEREDITHNo. I don't entertain ignorance.
TEIGENAre you kidding? That IS my twitter.
AGDALNo. I don't have the energy for that kind of drama. But I think it can be fun to see someone else feud.
