Twittering Away Election Day

Here’s a fun way to introduce yourself to the world of Twitter if you aren’t a Twitterer yourself or know someone who is. What is Twitter? A combination of social networking and micro-blogging that enables you to post “tweets” of up to 140 characters or less, a sort of bloggers’ Haiku (which, unlike Haiku, seems to be a waste of time!).

This site, Election 2008, filters thousands of tweets per minute and feeds you just those that have to do with the election so you get an instant public opinion meter passing before your eyes, as fast as you can read. You can also choose a more sorted view, for example, receive only those posts about Palin or Obama. For what it’s worth.
