Though the facilities provided by Facebook are not available in Twitter, many people find it a best place to hangout. When we ask people why they love twitter, they say like "I can get the answers instantly using twitter". Actually, twitter is mostly used by Bloggers, Internet marketers, evangelists who choose to promote their products/sites.

Twitter gives the ability of constant linking out to anywhere and in that respect, is more anagolous to a pure search engine. So, we can call twitter as a "Search Engine" as it provides the information when we search.
