TweeterSearch: Firefox Custom Search to find your friends on Twitter

Corvida from SheGeeks was looking for a custom search to Twitter earlier, so I thought I’d knock one up for her. It’s not tremendously difficult to do, and I might post how to do it on AskOwen sometime soon, but in the meantime, TweeterSearch is available for people to download, install and use.

TweeterSearch adds a new search in your FireFox search bar that lets you search Twitter for a particular user. If there’s only one user matching the search criteria, you’ll get their details on the screen, otherwise you’ll get a list of options to choose from.

Download it, give it a try, and let me know if you think there are any improvements I can add to it. Just drop me a Tweet if you can.

On a sidenote, I shouldn’t really be coding, with my MBA exams on the cards in a few days time. But anything beats studying really, doesn’t it. Prefer doing housework or running on a treadmill if it gets me out of studying ;)

Added: Thanks to SheGeeks for spreading the word
