Buzzing right now

Just click on any tag to open a search tab displaying all the related tweets along with a custom graph showing the tag's activity over the past few hours or days.
On the left hand-side of our homepage, we display the trends detected by our algorithm. This is especially usefull to watch when you want to make sure you didn't miss anything important on twitter over the past few hours. You can also browse through the hot trend's history. Clicking on any hot trend will open a tab with a snapshot of the corresponding search results. You can even be automatically notified when twitscoop discovers a new hot trend, by simply following @twitscooptrends.
You can search for a specific tag, conversation, topic or username by entering it into the search box on the left hand-side of the homepage. We will display the corresponding tweets and activity graph in a dedicated search tab. Search results refresh automatically.
