= Twitter Search Widget

* http://ryanschenk.com/twitter_search_widget

== DESCRIPTION:

The Twitter Search Widget allows you to display the results of a Twitter
search on your website, blog, etc, without writing any JavaScript or HTML.

It is, however, assumed that you will (and want to) style it.

== FEATURES:

* Clean Code
* Semantic HTML Markup
* Allows you to style it however you'd like

== SYNOPSIS:

If you are unfamiliar with CSS, or simply do not want to write any, do not use
this widget. There is another Twitter search widget that you can simply drop
in and use. It is located at http://twitterwidget.jazzychad.com/tw/

Jazzy Chad's widget is fantastic if you need a drop-in, pre-styled solution.
However, it uses inline styles that can be limiting if you need find grained
control over the appearance of elements.

If you are a web designer or developer who needs full control over the styling
of the Twitter feed, then look no further. This widget produces
straightforward, semantic HTML that will make styling a breeze.

== INSTALL:

 Place lib/twitter_search.js into the javascripts folder on your server

== USAGE:

 <script src="/path/to/twitter_search.js" type="text/javascript" ></script>
 <script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
   TwitterSearch.search('--YOUR SEARCH QUERY HERE--');
 </script>

 See examples/example.html for a working example, and a sample stylesheet.

== FUTURE FEATURES:

It would be rad if it could search for new messages via AJAX. Unfortunately, I
haven't been able to find a way around the Single Origin Policy. If any
JavaScript hackers could make a workaround, that'd be sweet.
