Scoopler provides more than just a real-time Twitter search since it’s launch in April 2009. It extends out to other social networks. The homepage is a simple search box with trends along the bottom. From their site they talk about how they bring in the data from all over:
We aggregate and organize content being shared on the internet as it happens, like eye-witness reports of breaking news, photos and videos from big events, and links to the hottest memes of the day. We do this by constantly indexing live updates from services including Twitter, Flickr, Digg, Delicious and more.
I tried some sample searches outside of the trends to get a better feel for topics maybe not already in the Scoopler index. I picked the BET Awards since they were going on while wrting this posting. It immediately showed videos down the right (that could be broken down to video, images and links) and a live, scrolling Twitter search in the middle that was updating in real-time.
The left column was still showing recent trends. I would like to see that used for more search results and better screen real estate usage than showing the same from the homepage. At least make it collapsible. You are able to pause the live stream if it is moving too fast to keep up, depending on tweet volume. You can also click to preview and link and share the tweet themselves.
For a longer review, MakeUseOf had a great posting that I found.
