TweetMinster lets users track the hot political topics on Twitter

Filed as News on March 13, 2009 11:42 am

tweetometerTweetMinster.co.uk, the service that shows which UK politicians are using Twitter, has just launched a “tweetometer” that will allow people to compare and track what the hot topics on Twitter in real time.

Of course you could put any terms in to the system (predictably, I tried “apple” versus “microsoft” – sorry about that) but the service is no doubt hoping users will try “Gordon Brown” and “David Cameron”.

It’s a nice little Flash application, and though you can get similar statistics using other services it does at least lighten up politics a little.
