The current protests across the Middle East have highlighted how important social networks have become in both helping people to organise themselves and also allowings us to know what is happening in a country where offical media channels have been cut off or restricted.

Monitter is a website that works with Twitter and  allows you to enter keywords and see the tweets that contain those words in real time. You can also specify a geographical location so that you can find the tweets being made by those experiencing events on the ground.


Twitter Venn

September 2, 2010

This great little app shows how combing words changes search results. You simply enter two or three search terms separated by commas and press the ‘Search’ button. A Venn diagram will then be generated  which illustrates the rate of tweets containing the search terms in the various combinations.

An excellent visual tool for anyone demonstrating effective searching.
