Twitterhawk shows tweets in your geographical location while also finding potential people to connect with to grow your twitter followers. Let's say you just opened a new coffee store in Queens and wanted to let people know about it by target marketing. As part of your advertising efforts, you could setup TwitHawk to search for tweets like "I need coffee" and set the search location to within 5 miles of Queens (if you are a global company, you can choose to ignore the location field to get tweets worldwide).TwitHawk then periodically finds tweets that mentioned "I need coffee" by users that are actually, located within 5 miles of Queens such as '@cracksh0t I need a coffee or anything with caffeine NOW' or '@loxly This is so boring, I need a coffee... my one true love'TwitHawk will grab the tweets, and pop them in a list for you to check over, and you'll be notified that you've got new matches to check over so you can immediately reply to the user and maximize your chances of engaging with them in real time.Should there be a match for coffee on something like '@coffeeh8r I cannot stand coffee!!!' you can simply remove this from your matches list.Matches that are left for 24 hours will be culled from your list to make way for newer fresher matches.
