From the article: "I find Twitter the most essential social media tool for Internet Marketers on many levels, mainly because of its search API.
Unlike Facebook's and Google Plus's non-existent search options, Twitter makes it easy to go through the huge amounts of updates being published every minute and find those which are relevant (and important) to your brand.
Twitter search is priceless for various tasks:

- Monitor most recent link building opportunities. I for one use Twitter search to instantly react to niche guest posting invites;
