If you have a little time to waste on Twitter, you might want to check out a new site called YouAsked.it. Created by Belgium developer, Maarten Schenk, “You Asked It” filters tweets with questions in them. When a question pops up, you get under 30 seconds to respond to it.
To use You Asked It, you will of course need a Twitter account, and perhaps a willingness to write pithy and witty responses to a range of questions—from vague and personal ones like, “Why can’t I stop thinking about you?” and “do people get high and watch Hallmark channel movies?, to more serious musing like, “does getting married not exist anymore?”
If those questions are too mundane for you, you can filter questions with a tag or string of interest. So if you type “iPhone 5″, you get only questions related to that topic. You can click the “Get me a different question!” as many times as you like. When a question pops up that you want to answer, click in the box and start writing.
If you the time limit is coming near, quickly hit the blue “Send my reply” button, and from there you will get an opportunity to complete your response before posting the tweet response.
The neat thing about You Asked It is that it could mean meeting new people and potential followers, or lead to a very interesting conversation. Some questions are really just musings, but you might still find the site fun.
