A Little Birdy Told Me

I've just discovered another use for Twitter.

You tweet a question about something you're researching, and almost as fast as Google comes back with an answer to your query, you get an answer from someone in the know.

How does this work?

Well, as near as I understand it, when I put my question in, it got indexed by Twitter.

Now, either the person at the other end did a Twitter search, or perhaps there is some kind of software out there that will notify you if a tag term is used somewhere.

In any case, I'm blown away with how quickly the response comes back!
