The US Presidential Election on Twitter

Filed as News on September 26, 2008 4:20 am

This is pretty cool. Twitter has launched a mashup page that crawls people’s tweets, and pushes out the ones relevant to the election. I especially like the auto update feature, something that really should be on every user’s page as well. Check out the Election on Twitter page, and read more about it on the Twitter Blog.
