Why are people searching for those keywords right now? Find out below how to get current Twitter results on Google...

Have you ever been on Google Trends and saw a certain term trending upwards but have no idea why by looking at the results that Google Trends gives you from Google News and Recent Blog Posts?


Well I found this post describing how to add a Firefox plugin that gives you real-time Twitter results on Google when you type in a certain term.


For example, I installed the add-on and then typed "tornado warning Denver" into Google and was able to find tweets right away from within the past 40 minutes of people saying that a funnel cloud had been spotted in downtown Denver and that people had gotten pelted with hail.


I already like this Firefox add-on as a great addendum to researching why certain terms are trending.
