I think that Twitter, more than Google, is turning into the best search tool for people in real-time.
I use it to find people who are talking about the same things I’m interested in.
For example, in my account, I’ve saved these searches:
And I periodically log in and run the search to network with or follow other people interested in what I’m interested in.
I’ve used CoTweet.com to manage postings from multiple accounts (one for my personal Twitter account, one for my business Twitter account, and others for our client accounts through my web development company).
I use TwitterFeed.com to import the RSS feed from my blogs into my Twitter feed.
I’ve also added a “AddThis.com” button to my blog and website so it’s easy to “tweet” a post.
From this, I am doing better and better at finding other minority women in business and green, success-oriented, fair trade, organic, progressive, sustainable, eco-friendly, and holistic business owners.
I’m also enjoying the conversations, the ability to search by location and by topic, and the blazingly fast transfer of information (for example, a tweet to watch for the International Space Station as it flew by last night, with a link to the correct website).
What do you think? Is Twitter working for you?
