From the Twitter Search FAQ, "There is an undeniable need to search, filter, and otherwise interact with the volumes of news and information being transmitted to Twitter every second. Twitter Search helps you filter all the real-time information coursing through our service."

We've recently upgraded our Twitter feature in Atlas to include search. Click the Twitter icon in Atlas (you'll find it under the "experimental" tab) and we'll begin by displaying tweets from the public timeline. Enter your own search term OR select a currently trending topic from the dropdown and Atlas will begin streaming search results as they happen.

Dr. Andrew Hudson-Smith of Digital Urban offers a word of advice, "Warning you could spend hours just watching this Twitter visualization using Atlas."

Pro tip: You can create your own Twitter search map URL using http://atlas.freshlogicstudios.com/?twitter={searchTerm}
