Well it’s more than useful, it’s a magical tool that enables you to find random strangers in Twitterverse with similar interests by a mere keyword! Well, it’s actually more than that, but I’ll explain…
A few weeks ago, I tweeted about wine and in mere seconds I received followers who had wine interests. I was wondering how they did that but asked outright only to receive no reply.
Then again a few days later, I tweeted about Clearwire, and bingo! Someone with the word clearwire in their name befriended me.
How are these people finding me?!

So I tried it out by typing in the word wine, and here’s what it brought up:
And it’s continuation below where you can see all the people whose tweets include the word wine:
But don’t take my word for it, go to Twitscoop and see for yourself. Cin cin, e alla salute!
