Insert Tag Clouds Into Your Twitter: New Release of Search Cloudlet


Kiev (Ukraine) New York INTSPEI announced the release of the second beta version of Search Cloudlet - an easy-to-use Firefox extension that adds context-sensitive tag clouds to the most popular search engines and helps peoplenavigate through their search results more efficiently. The previous version of Search Cloudlet worked with Google and Yahoo; the new version also works with Twitter. It adds Tag Clouds, Author Clouds, Recipient Clouds and Hashtag Clouds to Twitter search, Twitter user profiles and home pages.

There are two main ways Search Cloudlet helps people improve their Twitter experience. First, it efficiently narrows the search. A person should simply click on a cloud item (tag, author, etc.) to add it to the query. Second, it helps to get a summary of all found tweets without even reviewing them. For example, a cloud located on the top of the user profile page allows viewers to grasp quickly what this user is tweeting about.

Unlike existing tag cloud tools for Twitter, Search Cloudlet offers full organic integration of cloud-based navigation into all Twitter functions. With Cloudlet, users get tag clouds seamlessly inserted into their Twitter home-pages, search pages, profile pages, favorites and even into public timeline. On top of traditional simple tag clouds, Cloudlet adds various context-sensitive clouds, such as Author Clouds, Recipient Clouds, and Hashtag Clouds.

The new version of Search Cloudlet supports all functions available in previous versions: for a Google blog search, Search Cloudlet builds an Author Cloud that shows which authors contributed the most to discussions around specific topics; for a web search, it provides a server-cloud that shows which websites contain the most relevant information about your subject, etc.

The first beta version of Search Cloudlet was released on December 15, 2008. Over 30000 users have downloaded it within the first ten weeks after the release, approximately 25% of them keep using Search Cloudlet on everyday basis.
