If you ask a question on a platform like Twitter, you might get an answer. If you really want an answer the thing to do is confidently state the wrong thing – people will swarm out of the woodwork to correct you, and you’ll have your answer faster.
People absolutely love the chance to be right, and you can use that to your advantage!
Here’s another way – if you want the chance to prove something, make an outrageous statement. Say something that seems untrue, but that you can back up. Make your boldest claim, and people will scramble to call you out. If you claim is one that can only be disproven by you failing, then they’ll have to give you the chance in order to prove themselves right.
And of course, you’ll prove them wrong.
