I don't know anything about Wordpress or plugins, but is there any moderation 
workflow built into these widgets? I just had to cringe at the silly results 
produced by the indiscriminate use of a twitter search feed by one colleague 
from a highly respectable international organisation. It's not a matter of 
censoring negative remarks about your brand - evidently you are prepared for 
that. But what happens when someone says something really, really dumb, vulgar 
or racist involving your searchterm? Can you handle all the world's languages? 
It could be a fun opportunity for spammers or competitors! Even assuming that 
your brandname is universally unambiguous and could only ever refer to your 
business, you may be in for a case of 'irrelevant automated content syndrome'.

Have fun!
