Hashtags working in Hebrew

Hello all,

I have been using twitter quite a lot recently and to users that are using non-Latin tweets, it might have occurred that the hashtags don’t work.

So I took the time to write a greasemonkey script that does the job (for Firefox, Chrome, Webkit and others).

It will add a search link on the word, unfortunately due to a twitter bug, I had to remove the number sign (#) because twitter can’t search with it.

  • The script should work with all non-Latin languages (tested Hebrew, Arabic and Chinese)
  • The script does not work when the “more” button is pressed. If anyone knows how to solve that please contact me. fixed!

I hope this becomes a useful tool for people.
