Thanks! The API includes search which outputs JSON [1],
which is what we currently use on the Twitter widget, so it should be
no problem to make the widget work with that.

However, from my design POV, there is the question of how to represent
these... um... *insert's equivalent of the term 'tweet'
here*? Twitter is great from a semiotic perspective: the bird icon is
easily recognised and the microblog post is called a tweet. This makes
it easy to distinguish what you're looking at very quickly - if we
move to a more obscure symbol (that is, replace the bird with
something else), it makes it harder for people to figure out what
they're looking at. Maybe has its own icons and terminology
that act as Twitter-equivalents (A quick Google search revealed 'dent'
... doesn't sound too appealing at first glance), so feel free to
correct me here.
