SearchWPplugins is a better way to search:
SearchWPplugins enables you to enter many more relevant search parameters than the regular WordPress repository search form.
In this sample search I am returning plugins with “twitter” as a keyword, with a minimum 4-star rating, a minimum of 50 reviews, a minimum of 20000 downloads, last updated no later than 02/07/2012, and excluding old and broken plugins.
