We had an afternoon hail storm yesterday evening. Before the storm, the sky was pregnant and everything around us took a deep breath before the heavens unleashed thunder, lightning, and hail. My son was interested in seeing more videos of hail. A quick search on Twitter revealed a goldmine up to date footage. It was so much better than Youtube. No pre-roll ads, less spam, no crappy UX.
YouTube is a superior archive and repository for in-depth, long-form research. Twitter is excellent for real-time, user-generated stuff. If Twitter can fix its search functionality then it will be a force to be reckoned with.
There’s so much goodness buried in the Twitter timeline with no way for it to be discovered!
