Seek A Tweet

If you haven’t tried Seek A Tweet yet, its a tool which combines Twitter Search with Google maps.  


By clicking on the map, you can instantly see the 100 most recent tweets from anywhere in the world.

For personal interest, this is a good way of meeting people in an area – maybe somewhere you’ll soon be travelling, or just those close to home?



Find customers on Twitter

However the app can also be used for finding new business too!

The control panel which appears when you click on the map has a “filter” option.    This allows you to only search for tweets containing specific words.


So for example, imagine you’re a plumber.    Click on your location and filter on the word “plumber”.    Now you’ll see all tweets in your area relating to the word “plumber”.    Chances are you’ll now find someone who’s looking for a local plumber – and here’s your chance to step in and promote your services!


Here’s an example of a Tweet I just found in the London area:



There’s even a slider to change the distance you’re willing to travel (though you’re unlikely to want a 1000km radius for plumbing work unless you can charge mileage"!).



So why not give it a try now and see if you can find new customers on Twitter right now!?
