Chrome Browser Extension “HashPlug” Adds Twitter Results To Google Searches

HashPlug, a one-step download, adds Twitter search results into Google in an “unobtrusive manner,” so that you get real time results on the latest topics right alongside Google’s results.

You don’t even have to restart your browser. No Twitter account or password is required. But if you do log into Twitter, HashPlug also allows you to favorite, reply or retweet any result.
