What is Twitter good for?

People always ask me “What is twitter good for?”

Hey this foreclosed house on my block has foot tall grass. Help?

They replied to me this morning and sent me a DM asking for the address of the house and a contact number. They then called me a few hours later telling me they were working on the problem and would keep me updated if they found out anything. 

When I came home the house looked like this:
