TweetGrid is a fantastic way to take advantage of one of Twitter's strengths, and one of the reasons we encouraged you to use it, instant real-time searching. TweetGrid arranges real-time searches in a customisable grid.
You don't need to have a Twitter account to use TweetGrid, although logging in allows you to use the dashboard twitter client at the top of the screen. Without a login you can still create custom search boxes in varying configurations as simple as a 1x1 single panel or busier versions like a 3x3 panel, or even a 1x10 side scrolling bar. Each box is given a custom search term and you can adjust the panels from real-time updates to updating on timed intervals. You can select the number of tweets each box will hold before the new entries push the old entries off the roll and you can stop the updates completely if you need to freeze it in place. TweetGrid is a free service and only requires a login to enable tweeting from the TweetGrid dashboard. If you have a favoured way of monitoring twitter searches, sound off in the comments below.
