What is your question?
Geared for the crowdsourcing bunch, TweetBrain kicks up the microblogging platform a notch with its signature pitch: “What is your question?”
The question entry field is limited to 400 characters and makes for a more fulsome social experience, especially for those wishing to pose specific questions and require more than 140 characters to do it.
No-brainer Design for Eggheads
Taking pointers from Twitter’s easy-to-use design, TweetBrain reflects a similar GUI (graphic user interface) and reinforces that keeping it clean and simple is the only way to make this online experience work.
Virtually any type of question may be posted on TweetBrain. Each question may be classified from over 25 types of question categories ranging from automotive to writing/editing.
The landing page posts a running list of the ‘Latest Questions’. The sidey (side bar navigation) is divided into two main buckets: the user’s profile box at the top and the Questions Tracker box below, with links to the ‘Open Questions’, ‘Favorites’ and the very useful ‘Hotlists’ mini nav that tracks Topics, Questions and Rewards on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
When posing a question, the user has the option of placing a dollar value as reward to the best answer posted, along with a deadline for answer submission, as well as a dropdown selection of the category under which the question should be classified.
There are a ton more useful info on the Top Nav where you can adjust your Settings, access a very informative FAQ page, etc. This tool is a MUST TRY!
Crowdsourcing has never looked so easy and felt so accessible. If you are a crowsdsourcing fan and have been itching to experience social media’s next enfant terrible, check out TweetBrain.
