Twitter As A Search Engine?

twitterI started my twitter account about a year ago, my first tweet a simple “Working” was made from well, work. Back then nobody else really understood what twitter was, and saw the quick 140 character updates as pointless and a waste of time. But I kept with it, there was a time I went a few months with out posting an update to my twitter account but. Then I got back into it and now I post multiple times a day.

I think the most common thing I actually use twitter for is searching, yes thats right. I search for new things on twitter before I search on Google. because while searching Google may return several pages written on whatever I’m seeking information on Twitter yields millions of individuals that have personal experience with what I’m seeking information on.

Living in San Diego I’ll be attending Comic Con in a few months, and while searching for #commiccon may not yield much information on the subject. Try it again during the convention and I guarantee you’ll see thousands upon thousands of tweets on the subject.

Twitter is turning more into a way for people to gather useful information on the internet, Twitter is turning into a search engine.

Drop it! The simplest way to share online.

drop.ioWhile Dropbox my be the easy way to share your files between your multiple computers or perhaps a friend or two, drop.io is the way to do it between many people. offer your files up for everyone to download or even create a space for everyone to upload files to yourself you get your own personal “drop” with 100mb’s and the best part? you can make as many drops as you want. 100mb not enough for you? you can expand the drop to a full gig for $10 for an entire year (you can expand it more at the rate of $10 per gig).

So whast so special about this so called “drop”? well first the number of ways you get data into it for examply you can view my free drop at http://drop.io/kaotickreation want to leave me a message? sure you could go to the trouble of recording an mp3 and uploading it to my drop. Or you could simply call 917-512-7398 x 87130 and leave a message, that message will automaticly be converted into an mp3 and placed in my drop space. You can also Email data to the drop (you can set up an access list of who to accept messages from). Set up a guest password so not everyone can interact with your drop or even set up a hidden uploader (linky).

This is a truly amazing product and you cant beat the price. give it a shot if your playing around just set your drop to expire after a day or two and go to town.

ok one last feture that is absolutly amazing is the ability to charge people to access your drop. This makes it very easy to self publish your account using a Amazon Payment Business Account.

I could go on and on about drop.io but trust me. Its free and easy. Go set one up and play around with it. whats to lose, its free!
