TweetTabs – Real-time twitter search with multiple tabs

TweetTabs is an application brought to you by TweetMeMe. This twitter search application presents search results in a tabbed view and it does this beautifully.

Enter a search term and tweettabs would automatically open a new tab with the search results in it. You can move tabs and position them any way you want. Trending topics are displayed at the top and clicking on any of them would open a new tab with the results for the same. Results are updated automatically in real-time thus relieving you from the hassles of hitting the refresh button.

I couldn’t find a “Pause” button though, which can make searching high activity keywords a bit of a pain.

Hover on any of the tabs and the messages would pause so that you can read the tweets, sounds amazing and so convenient!

TweetGrid and TwitterPowerSearch are two of the sites that are already doing something of this sort. If you are one of those who loves tabbed websites, you can also give TwitHive a try.

  • Automatically opens a new tab for search results

Twiogle – Twitter and Google search combined

Twiogle combines Twitter and Google search. We had profiled TwoQuick sometime back which does the same thing.

What I liked about Twiogle is the Ajax interface which gets the search results without refreshing the page thus making it less annoying.

Whenever you have a problem at hand, you search Google. That’s fine. But how about having recommendations from twitter users as well! There are a lot of times when a simple Google search would not give you the right results. Twitter search can be of help here.

You can tweet the search results on twitter as well as link it from your blog. Speaking of blogs, Twiogle offers a WordPress plugin with which you can embed it in your blogs. The best part is you can insert your own Adsense publisher id thus earning you all the ad revenues from the search result!

Twiogle can also be added to your Firefox searchbar so that you can search right from your browser.


  • Search Google and Twitter
  • AJAX powered interface
  • WordPress plugin to embed Twiogle in your blog
  • Add to your Firefox searchbar


Twiogle Says
