When it comes to searching for specific feedback across social media platforms the first thing that comes to my mind is Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn. However, not everyone is on LinkedIn and due to the secrecy of Facebook it’s hard to quickly get the valuable feedback you are looking for. That’s why I prefer to use Twitter for this purpose.
This note is to talk about how to use this social network to find interesting feedback from expert followers in your niche to learn, get ideas and inspiration to improve your business.

When you visit an expert account on Twitter take advantage of your visit by checking what they are tweeting, and I am not referring about news or content they share. I am talking about questions they ask to their audience to start a conversation.
Tracking experts ACTIVITY
Make a list of experts in your niche or find their official account

Don’t follow experts just because they have a huge follower base. Most followers are silent and inactive.

feedback from HASHTAGS VS EXPERT accounts
Feedback from hashtags are a mix of comments from the entire Twitter community including spammers. Most tweets are off topic. The result is not always targeted nor filtered by niches.
Feedback from expert followers is targeted and filtered for your niche and most are being monitored by the expert.
Below is a perfect example of valuable feedback you can get from Twitter expert accounts that you can embedding in your blog, presentations, proposals and website.
