Let's Be Trends is a web service API for getting information about trending topics on Twitter. The explanations for trends are provided by users of Brizzly. The API lets you get a list of current trends, details on a specific trend, or international explanations. The international service will find information on a given trend for a specific locale. These services are developed by Thing Labs.
What is everyone searching for or talking about? Knowing the terms that are trending right now is like knowing the news. With a new API your apps can be just as aware. Lets Be Trends provides programmatic access to the most popular keywords on Twitter in realtime (details at our Let's Be Trends API profile).
