Ask questions

Who’s the best flat-top barber in San Francisco?

I’m from NY. Will my iPhone incur roaming charges in Bermuda?

What kind of wine goes with tofu parmesan?

Twitter is a Q&A machine. Here’s how you get in on the action: ask a question. People like to help, and Twitter lets them do so by offering just a sentence or two. You won’t always get answers, but a lot of the time you will (even if you have just a handful of followers). People on Twitter are delighted to contribute their knowledge.

If you want a more formal process, or if you’d like to reach beyond your own followers, consider TweetBrain (http://tweetbrain.com), a Twitter-powered Q&A service.

Twitter Tip

To be a really good Twitter citizen, don’t just ask questions, repost the best answers, too. As you can see here, closing the loop isn’t hard, and it makes Twitter more valuable for everyone.
