Note: The example above is how the Tweetometer would appear on your site.

What's the hottest political topic on Twitter? Cameron or Brown? Labour or the Lib Dems? Credit Crunch or Guantanamo? Our easy to use Tweetometer can tell you.

How it works:

Step 1: Enter the terms you want to compare (anything at all) and see for yourself.

Step 2: Grab the code and paste it into your web page or blog.

Step 3: Sit back and watch the needle swing in a real time popularity contest.

You can create as many Tweetometers as you like - making it easy to catch the topics that are speeding ahead in political conversations. Who knows, the Tweetometer might just give you the heads-up on who's going to win the next election...

To use our Tweetometer just copy and paste the code below into your HTML page. (We've put in Gordon Brown and David Cameron as default searches... to change this just replace the "first=" and "second=" values.)
