What are people saying on Twitter?

Word Cloud allows you to see, in a picture, what people are saying on Twitter. It starts by your entering a search term or phrase, Word Cloud then retrieves up to 5000 of the most recent tweets that match and feeds those to a custom analysis. That analysis identifies the most commonly used words, hashtags, and more frequently mentioned users in those tweets.

When the analysis is complete, you are given three tabs (for words, hashtags, and mentions) that visualize the results of the analysis. At a glance you can see the most frequently used words, tags, and users. In the case of the words, they are also color coded to indicate a negative (red) or positive (green) sentiment. This allows you to also see whether the conversation seems positive, negative, neutral, or mixed.
