I like reading quotes that people tweet and post. There are lots of times I’d love to be able to search for that perfect quote. Unfortunately, trying to find the perfect quote is difficult because of the massive amount of other noise on the sites where people post them.
Sites like BrainyQuote help with the entire process, but why not a simpler twitter like interface or filter where anytime someone posts a quote it goes to the special ‘quotes’ section. Seems like a better way to crowdsource the quote library, while keeping the site’s content pure to quotes.
How would you use quotes more effectively? What things would you build off of a good quote API?
