I must admit that twitter is actually pretty cool but it’s real promise isn’t as a microblogging website. twitip (the twitter tip site) has a good article about using twitter as a search engine when you’re looking for a response that understands the nuance of your query. Now,admittedly the example described works a bit pat and I’ve had countless conversations where a person’s initial response wasn’t so hot or missed the context of my question. However, there’s a good point here. When it’s in someone’s interest to answer your query then they’ll probably do a better job, faster, than google. Perhaps google should introduce twitter searching into their search engine. Google search could be improved with a bit of ajaxian push.
