OneRiot, a real-time search engine for web and video content, has launched a new Twitter search engine with a unique angle: Rather than focus on what people are saying, the search engine focuses on the web pages people are linking to.
How it Works: When people share stuff on Twitter, they often include links to the content they’re talking about. Most of the time, these links are shortened into tinyurls or bit.ly links. That post then becomes searchable via Twitter’s own search engine, which groups tweets by common words. So, a search for Guantanamo on Twitter, would see a bunch of related tweets in a list. It also helps you see the conversation happening around the specific link that you shared, or the uninterrupted passing of that link from tweet to tweet?
