The idea with LazyTweet is to embrace and extend the questions already being asked on Twitter, enhancing Twitter discussions with the lowest friction possible, while opening those questions up to a wider audience.
Just tweet your question, and include the words "lazytweet" or "lazyweb" in it. It can be a hashtag, #lazytweet (or #lazyweb), or a reply @lazytweet (or @lazyweb), or just say lazytweet (or lazyweb). Something like this: @lazytweet What is the best question and answer service for Twitter? That's it. We'll find the question and take it from there. Doing this has several benefits: 1. It explicitly lets your followers know you're asking a question, and hopefully you get an answer from them. Frequently, questions are ignored because they appear to be rhetorical in nature, or not explict enough. This makes it clear you'd like an answer. 2. It gives your question a second chance if your followers don't have an answer. Conversations move quickly on Twitter, and your followers could have easily missed your question. Since LazyTweet is dedicated to a specific type of tweet, your question will enjoy a longer visibility window. 3. It gives your question a wider audience beyond your followers. Not everyone has thousands of followers, and if your followers don't have an answer, perhaps someone on LazyTweet will. 4. It allows for a more in-depth and in-context discussion around your question than can be had on Twitter. You can "take it offline" so to speak. Come back to LazyTweet to leave comments on the answers you receive.
