SharePoint Search and Twitter

September 7, 2009

End User SharePoint has provided a means to search Tweets within SharePoint. You may first want to read these two articles by following the two links below:

  1. Search Federation with SharePoint – Part 1
  2. Search Federation Part 2 – Customizing Results with SharePoint Designer

Then you will want to navigate to EUSP’s “Binary Free SharePoint Twitter Search Web Part”. EUSP has provided screen shots and a walk through of the method. For me the most interesting comment in the write up was:

Remove the web part connection created in the previous exercise before exporting!

Useful tip which can obviate the need for hours of hair pulling and Red Bull guzzling. Set aside an hour, maybe two, and then you will have Tweets in SharePoint. A happy quack to Woody Windischman who posts to The Sanity Point Web log.
