I've just set up an API that allows everyone access to frequency and
trending data extracted from our Twitter Stratified Random Sample
(see http://illocutioninc.com/Research). The data is updated every 6
hours, so the API is always delivering current stats.

The link below will take you to a page with explanations and a demo
app that will allow you to test and see what is returned. This is really
the best way to stay up-to-date on the Twitter Lexicon and trends
(better than the Lexicon download), and it is a fantastic way to add
linguistically-principled trend data to your web site. Enjoy.
