Martino in Trento, Italy asks, “Which search media does return the more reliable information: Google or Twitter?”

Now don’t go hating on Twitter, trying to make people bust heads. Twitter has many many great uses. It’s great for breaking real time sort of news, it’s fantastic in asking your friends. And Google on the other hand, we try to return really reliable, really reputable information. So if you are sorting by date Twitter is fantastic, if you want an answer to a question that’s been around for a while Google looks great for that. So try both for different situations. If you don’t have as many friends then you may not be able to get the questions that you want answered on Twitter. And I wouldn’t be surprised if spammers are eventually see traffic on Twitter and they are like muhahahaha because if you are only sorting by date then any new fad that comes along or spam will try to jump on to that. So they are different, they are good for different things. They use whatever works best for you.

I use both sites and each has advantages and disadvantages, eg the limit of twitter in 140 characters can be useful in some cases of microblogging and specific responses, if the answer should be more extensive, will not be sufficient to 140 characters in google + for example when placing bookmarks or pages from which you own is a great advantage as this can include the author’s website to search results including your photograph, you have to know how to exploit advantages of each of the networks social and used to our advantage, very good video thanks for sharing and congratulations for your blog
