Did You Try These Twitter Gadgets?

In October, Brian Rothenberg explained in his post how useful Twitter Search can be for Local Social Media Marketing. I am going to show you how to create a search widget to add to your blog or web site to provide relevant content to your audience.

I will create a Twitter search widget to show Walkscore Tweets for various neighborhoods. I have created these tweets using Twitter API and Walkscore API. Note that I am searching using a Hash Tag (see # sign before the search term), which is more powerful than a simple search.
