- The “Top Tips and piTs” widget displays the top Tip and piT messages and authors for the specified search term.

- The “Concept Cloud” widget displays all the related topics people are writing about related to the search term specified.
Here are some examples of TipTop Search Widgets in action. If your site or blog posting is about people, your readers will enjoy seeing the running commentary about a celebrity or famous personality like the Korean star Woo Young. As you can see you can interact with the @writers and the links they post in the messages. The automatic refreshing of Top Tip and piT messages will be indicated with a time stamp below the message. Your readers can easily get search results from Twitter by entering a query in the TipTop Search box at the top of the search widget. If your readers would be interested in quick opinion polling results related to any subject try out the “Tips and piTs ratio” search widget. A good example of this sentiment snapshot is for hearing what real people are saying about new releases, like the Tarentino movie Inglorious Basterds.
Below are a couple examples of the “Concept Cloud” widgets, which are helpful for your readers if the topic or theme of your website encourages research, discovery or a curiosity itch.
Ahimsa Village, a sustainable community group, is using the Concept Cloud widget to enable members to see what conversations are happening now on Twitter, in preparation for a talk about the economist Henry George. This is a great way to get participants interested in an event and prepare for a discussion. A great idea for book club discussions as well!
Current events are often the subject of blog postings and the writings of many a journalist, so it is no surprise that a TipTop Concept Cloud widget was created to allow readers to delve deeper into the topic, Great Depression, in an article discussing the failure of recent economic models in the blog, Letters to Sachin.
