Hi Tan,

Good that you asked

For "Finance" keyword you can use the following feed http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?lang=en&q=finance

Sheri H said...

this isn't working for me. When I put in search.twitter.com the url changes to http://twitter.com/#!/search-home
and there is no option button. Did twitter make some kind of update since you published this tutorial?

Jagadeesh Mohan said...


Yes there are updates happening in Twitter.

You can use the following URL http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?lang=en&q=Google

Replace Google search word in URL with your keyword

i.e. http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?lang=en&q=YOUR KEYWORD
