This post will go over how to search twitter without a browser! How does one do this? Well in order to search twitter you must use a thing called Windows Federated search. I have been loving this feature.
I first of all want to thank The Lazy Admin for this. They are the ones that host this file and made the original post. First things first. Download the federated twitter search plugin for Windows 7.

Double click that file. You will be asked:
The first thing that you should notice that twitter search has now been added to your favorite folder view. (Here’s a before and after shot)

Go up to the top right hand corner of the screen and type the phrase you want to search for. For my example I did “Windows 7”.
Hope you found this useful.
