Have you ever asked a question out to the world in hopes of getting a crowdsourced response? Millions of people do this every day. They use social networks like Facebook and Twitter to get answers of various importance to them. Is it really working?
“We answer more questions on Twitter every day than we do anywhere else,” said Gail Umbridge at Honda Naperville. “It’s an imperative tool for connecting with our customers.”
For others, Twitter is more of a personal question tool. There are sites like Quora that are specifically designed for questions and answers, but Twitter is still the tool of choice for most. Are they getting the answers?

That’s an unfair statement. The Magic 8-Ball is magic and therefore it already knows all. Twitter it simply people thinking they know everything. No magic involved.
