I have created a version of Twitter's new official Tweet Button that works as a Chrome Extension. With this extension you can view the Tweet Count and Share the page for all web pages, even pages that don't have embedded tweet buttons.

The Tweet Count shows in red over the T icon to the right of the address bar, so you immediately know how how many tweets the page has received. If you want to Tweet it, just click on the icon and Twitter's official share box will appear, the same way it would if you had clicked a Tweet Button embedded on the page itself.

Simple as that.

A year ago, I created a Greasemonkey user script that displays the most recent 5 tweets for the query that you are searching for at the top of Google search results.

Today I have created one that does the same thing for Google Buzz results:

This works in both FireFox and Chrome.

Currently, the Buzz results are restricted to actual Buzz updates -- it excludes updates that are imported from other services sich as Twitter, Google Reader, RSS feeds, etc. This seemed to provide the best experience, but a future version may have options/settings for adjusting this. Buzz results are presented in plain text, limited to the first 140 characters, so they don't take up too much screen space on the Google results page. A "more »" link appears when the Buzz has additional text or media (links, images, etc.).

The Buzz results are powered by the Buzzzy API. A big thanks to the creators of Buzzzy for there work in creating a search engine and API for Buzz updates!

Get Buzz results on your Google searches:

FireFox

  1. If you don't already have it, install the Greasemonkey add-on for Firefox.
  2. Click the "Install" button on the "Buzz Search Results on Google" page on userscripts.org.

Chrome

  1. Install the Google Chrome Extension from the Extensions Gallery: Buzz Results on Google Chrome Extension.
  2. Click the "Install" button on the above page.

Today I have created an Extension for Google Chrome that does the same:

Over at my Moopz site, I have just released a new Twitter Bookmarklet that make it easy to submit the link of the page you are reading. A pop up appears with a Twitter-like interface, enabling you to quickly tweet the page you are reading. It is designed to be clean and easy to use, a few seconds and you are done. The Twitter Bookmarklet looks like this:

During the past few weeks, there has been a lot of discussion about whether Twitter's "real time search" could pose a threat to Google.

While I am not sure if Twitter poses a threat to Google, I think it is clear that real-time search is increasingly important. And you can be sure that Google knows it. Will Google try to acquire Twitter, or take some other approach? Time will tell, but rather that wait, I decided to get realtime twitter search results on Google today. I created a Greasemonkey user script that does exactly this. It displays the most recent 5 tweets for the query that you are search for, giving both real-time Twitter search results and Google results on the same page:

I have been using it for a few days now and I think it really adds some freshness to Google search results pages. Not only do you get the web pages that have been indexed by Google, but also relevant twitter conversations that are happening right now. One day I think we may see Google release something like this, but until then there is the Twitter Search Results on Google Greasemonkey script.

Get realtime Twitter results on your Google searches:

  1. If you don't already have it, install the Greasemonkey add-on for Firefox.
  2. Click the "Install" button on the "Twitter Search Results on Google" page on userscripts.org.
