Only Search The Tweets From Your Friends
By on December 22nd, 2009

Twitter has a great search tool but the results are often too broad and irrelevant. When you search Twitter you are mostly interested in what your friends are saying instead of the whole world. There had not been an easy way to customize Twitter search for this functionality, until now.

Flocking.me is a great new Twitter tool that lets you search your friends tweets only and filters out the rest of the world. To use the tool, simply head over to Flocking.me and sign in using your Twitter credentials. Once signed in, you will see a search page with all your friends listed. Just enter the term you want to search for and Flocking.me will pull up the results from your friends tweets.

You can see the results as a list view, a thumbnail view or even on an interactive map. Flocking.me also takes some of the popular words/phrases appearing in your friends tweets and show them on the top of your screen.

You don’t even have to reload the page to see updates results, Flocking.me will do that automatically.

Techie-Buzz Verdict:

Flocking.me is a great tool to search Twitter for more relevant and focused information. It filters out all the noise and only searches tweets from your friends.
