Extension for Chrome inserts a real-time Twitter feed into your Google+ stream, and allows users to retweet, reply, and even hashtag search.
With Facebook, Twitter, and now Google+ all competing for precious social networking time antyhing that helps combine the three into a single destination is definietly welcome.
I’ve already mentioned Start Google Plus (my favorite), but now there’s a new Google Chrome extenssion called G+ Twitter that intertwines your Twitter feed and Google+ stream in a new and exciting way.
First off, G+ Twitter updates in real-time! Tweets of those you’re following instantly appear in your stream; no wait times or time-out periods.
Second, you can both “Answer” (reply) and “Retweet” tweets as they appear in your Google+ stream; no need to switch back and forth between your Twitter page and Google+ account.
You can even “Unfollow” people in your Twitter feed from your Google+ stream!
Third, you can simultaneously tweet your posts in Google+, allowing you to reach an even larger social networking audience.
Fourth, and perhaps the coolest, is the fact that you can add a real-time hash tag and “@mention” search to your Twitter feed. Want to kow what people are saying about a topic like “#fantasyfootball”, for example, or just about you? Create a customized hash-tag query or select the “@Mention” option.
So if your a big Twitter fan, and want to truly combine it with your Google+ account then G+ Twitter is defeinitely the way to go.
