Script Summary: Display popular Twitter Trends on your Twitter home page.



Great way to see what's hot on Twitter while you're on the Twitter Home page reading your friends' Tweets. Uses the Twitter Trends service to list popular Tweet terms or phrases above the Following friend icon section. Each term is clickable and leads you to the search result for that term. See screenshot taken during the Superbowl below.

Technical: Uses the Twitter Trends API, documentation here: http://apiwiki.twitter.com/Search+API+Documenta.... I'm using Greasemonkey Javascript to parse the JSON response.

New to Greasemonkey? Then first add the GM extension to your Firefox browser https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/748, then come back to this page and click on the big Install button up top.
