    Certainly an improvement over the previous Twitter search widgets.

    If you’re interested in a widget that displays top trending content for any search query (as opposed to a chronological list of tweets), check out TrendSpottr’s Widgets at: http://trendspottr.com/widgets.php.

    Enter any keyword, hashtag, @name, etc and TrendSpottr Widget will display top trends for that query and update on a regular basis. You can customize the widget and easily embed on any HTML page. A WordPress plug-in is coming soon too!

    I agree, this is a big improvement over what we had in the past.

    Thanks for the update Danny. What I’ve always wondered especially with the google changes – how does google view these interactive timeline widgets?

    Hi Danny,
    The biggest reason why I won’t be recommending to clients that we implement this is that the content isn’t showing IN the page’s HTML – but is embedded as script. As I wrote in this MarketingLand post about curation and Twitter
    http://marketingland.com/curating-twitter-8845 – there ARE tools that will allow you to embed tweets as HTML – thus helping your site’s SEO.
    I’m also not a little afraid of Twitter’s maintenance of content… will those tweets still show next year? or is this ONLY for showing tweets dynamically – in which case this Timeline thing might be JUST the thing.-Ric

    This is good news, I can think of many applications, but keeping tabs on important events or keywords just got easier.

    I can’t seem to figure out how to remove the scroll bar from the “Search Widget”. Any ideas, I noticed in your screenshot yours were not there.
