@Answerme: Q&A Comes to Twitter

Goosh.org: A Command-Line Shell for Google

The way I like to think of Twitter is like a ‘command line for the web and your community.’ But with this command line, you can do special things like ask questions and receive real-time answers — something never possible before with the web. I know what you’re thinking: if you have 50,000 followers, that’s great, but what if you only have 5? @Answerme looks to streamline Q&A on Twitter.

I take it you’ve probably understood the service already, but for those who haven’t: you Twitter a question prepending “@answerme” (thereby directing the question to Twitter user @answerme), and your question lands on the @Answerme homepage. Your followers and @Answerme homepage visitors can then reply to your question with a response to both you and @answerme (i.e. @answerme @sidyadav The meaning of life is the number 42.) @Answerme then connects this answer with the question in its service and displays it as such (i.e. “1 answer” below the question.

The service really looks to streamline a concept grown out of the Twitter community of asking questions to your followers, only, it enables strangers to see and answer them and makes it more of a ‘service to the world,’ as opposed to only the questioner being able to see and gain from the answers.

Hat-tip to Muhammad Saleem from ReadWriteWeb for bringing the two month-old site to the surface. As you’ve probably noticed, I’m a sucker to helpful Twitter addons, so this wasn’t any exception. :-)
