10 Unusual Uses for Twitter

So I have given in and am writing a post that has a number and some list in it – forgive me this one time. This post is in thanks to @aplusk and others that constantly ask questions on Twitter.

You can use Twitter for any number of things but I thought I would just highlight a few of them. So with out further delay, here are some different ways people use Twitter.

  1. Movie Titles – yes this just did happen http://twitter.com/aplusk/status/1182313837
  2. Vote Requests – @thejessicadrake & Semmys
  3. Finding New Pickup Lines – #nerdpickuplines
  4. Doing quick polls/research – Polldaddy or just doing a search on a hash tag and counting (what I tend to do)
  5. Charity – @tweeterism
  6. Social Media – asking for stumbles, diggs or other social media pushes
  7. Where to eat/go when you are traveling? – When in a new city just ask Twitter – where’s the food at?
  8. Need a presentation? Ask Twitter. – It worked for @chriswinfield (and I did help him – you’re welcome Chris 😀 )
  9. Send Money – I found Twippr the other day and I’m not sure about if it is legit or works but it is an interesting idea.
  10. Blocking Shaq – “@livejamie This 6’0″ person wants to block @THE_REAL_SHAQ on Twitter, just for the pure symbolism of it.”

So that is all I have for now but I know you can (and I could if I tried) to think of more. What is your fave?
