TwitTube launch (Twitter Trends + YouTube)

When I login to Twitter, on the right pane I see a list of what Twitter calls "trends". Those are the most commonly words being discussed in Twitter in a given period.

Frankly I don't recognize most of them so I need to go to YouTube and search for that trend. Like for instance Apple Shampoo!.

Shhhh I also knew the Swine Flu from those trends.

Then it hits me. What if I used Twitter API to read the latest trends and then use YouTube API to feed the trends to?

Well, you get TwitTube.
