Twitter Search/Profile widgets?

Hi,

This may sound totally stupid to some of you but I am NOT into all this "Social Media" stuff....

Can someone give me a quick overview of what the "Twitter Search & Profile Widgets" do?

I want to add them to the site bit I would like to know what they are for or do before adding them.

Thanks
Phill

Re: Twitter Search/Profile widgets?

I've played around with the Twitter Search a little bit. Basically it's just a way to keep tabs on keywords that people are tweeting about. You can see it in action here in the lower right of the mojoPortal Community page. Joe has it set up to watch for tweets about mojoPortal.

One thing I was disappointed in (and this isn't a mojoPortal issue) is that the Twitter search ability is lacking. For instance, you can't construct a query to return tweets that mention "New York", but without the phrase "I'm at".  Because, really, who wants to see tweets saying "I'm at Monk's Diner in New York City!" Wow, good for you!

Hi Jamie,

Thanks for the hints & tips... I'll have to play with it a bit before I use it then.

What about the Twitter Profile Widget?   What does that do?

Thanks
Phill
