Twitter Follower Count

Hello All,


I want to search the Twitter user with thier name and link to LEAD of salesforce.


Please help me. 


If you are looking for an Apex-based custom solution, you will have to make HTTP callouts to Twitter API for searching.


More info on HTTP callouts from Apex - http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/apexcode/index_CSH.htm#apex_callouts_http.htm

Twitter API documentation - http://apiwiki.twitter.com/


On the other hand, if you want to see if you can use a ready-made package, check this one out from AppExchange - http://appexchange.salesforce.com/listingDetail?listingId=a0N30000003HpEQEA0  (Not sure if this would meet all your needs, but it's worth checking out)
