It helps the user to post tweets on a trend without having to copy paste trending topic manually. Don’t be afraid to download it, it does not contain any malicious code and it is not an exploit. You can see download information and instructions in source.

Anonymous announcement:

“To the people of the interwebz,

We recently have become tired of seeing trending topics on twitter that were redundant and “pop culture” like.  We have also grown tired of Twitter not trending hash tags that actually serve a cause and mean something to free thinkers of the world.  We have taken note of why Twitter would not do so, they only trend topics which would “appeal” to people and can get people to tweet more.  This was pathetic in our eyes, and we could not stand by and take it anymore.  We have developed a program called “U.R.G.E. Universal Rapid Gamma Emitter (twitter edition)” which hijacks trending topics of our choice and and lets us tweet messages within them.  This will help raise awareness of problems going on in this world and show people that real problems exist outside of “Jersey Shore” and “Sex”.  We will distribute this program amongst Anonymous and anyone else who cares to use this for awareness and bashing corrupt politicians.  This is not a hacking tool nor is it an exploit tool, it was created to make it easier for us to tweet faster without copying and pasting constantly.”
