Is there something that allows us to get a list of the latest tags used in post.

I want to get the 10 latest tags and align them side by side

How Can I make this happen?

@OneTrickPony You can mark posts as duplicates if you think the exact same answer would solve the problem. –  kaiser Oct 2 '12 at 0:12

The default WordPress tag cloud cannot order by latest, it only works by displaying the "most used", it does not accept any parameters to alter the query, only the layout.

Tags are usually used in conjunction with posts and are not really meant to be an archive or category, so in order to display the latest tags I'm pretty certain you have to do a direct DB query.
