I want to harness the Twitter API to get very large amounts of relevant trending information.
Twitter allows you to explore their already made api's here:

The problem with the trending api's is that 95% of the results are worthless. So if you're looking for real time trending information you really cant get it. Im interested in important, relevant information. Like trending topics in news, entertainment, and sports.
I need someone to develop a solution where I can mine relevant information from Twitter. I would like to be able to do this real time and see what's trending at that moment. I would like to be able to do this for news, entertainment, and sports. I feel that these three topics are a great place to start.
I am open to solutions which use the Twitter API, or use a combination of other methods. The Twitter Streaming API is probably a good place to begin searching for a solution. Facebook may be a good resource as well.
