Think of Twitter as a massive group of experts with deep knowledge about a variety of topics – everything from the best restaurants in Chicago and how to buy the right type of champagne to the perfect software to track customers or the best places to buy a bicycle.
It means if you have a question, there’s someone somewhere within the TwitterSphere who has the right answer. In other words, there’s a huge database at your fingertips – as long as your question is 140 characters or less.
The value of Twitter has a resource tool shouldn’t be under-estimated. In many ways, Twitter’s ability to provide answers to just about any question makes it an ideal complement to using search engines such as Google.
Just for fun, the next time you’re on Twitter, ask a question about something you want to do, drink or eat. You’ll probably be pleasantly surprised by the number of responses.
