Get Real-time Search Results on Google with HashPlug Chrome Extension

An agreement between Google and Twitter that enabled Google to include live Twitter updates in their search results through a special feed was discontinued last year in July as Twitter chose not to renew the agreement. With that real-time updates from Twitter were no more showing up on Google’s search results.

However, a really cool Google Chrome extension called HashPlug allows Chrome users to get real-time results on the latest topics that they search on Google. The extension adds a search results widget on the right hand side of Google’s search results page, displaying the latest tweets of that particular search term.

The results are updated automatically along with which you can retweet, favorite or even reply right from the widget box itself.

According to the developers, “while you are searching on Google it picks up the search term and displays real time results in an unobtrusive manner. It also allows you to favorite a tweet, reply to a tweet, or retweet any result. ”

The team have also stated that they have plans to extend the tool and integrate Facebook results as well – “As of now it only supports twitter results. But we have plans to integrate Facebook results too in future.”
