Users do not have to wait until Google buys Twitter

Users don’t have to wait until Google buys Twitter to combine the best of both search engines. As shown below or in my earlier post, this Greasemonkey user script displays the most recent 5 tweets for the query that you are searching for, giving both real-time Twitter search results and Google results on the same page. The only question is how long Twitter will keep its API open for this kind of mashup. (In the screen shot Firefox add-on CustomizeGoogle removed paid links and added links to alternative search engines.)
