Twitter have released a "search widget" that you can customise and place on your website to show all of the latest "tweets" that have been made on a particular subject.

What is the Twitter Search Widget?

The Twitter Search Widget is essentially a piece of javascript that you can place on your website. The javascript will create a kind of "news ticker" type section that will display all of the latest "tweets" that are made on a particular subject.

You can also customise the Twitter Search Widget so that it displays a title and a caption that suits your intended use.

If you want to change the colour and size of the widget, you can also do this by going to the "Appearance" and "Dimensions" tabs on the left hand side, however you won't notice these changes on the above preview page:

If you click the "Finish & Grab code" button at the bottom of the page you should also be presented with a textarea containing the javascript that is necessary to put the widget onto your site. Assuming you have done all of this correctly, you should hopefully see something like this:
