The social media revolution (in 15 minutes)


Twitter as an exit poll
November 4, 2008, 2:36 pm
Filed under: Uncategorized

Someone has put together this programme that checks out voting according to twitter posts.  Who knows how accurate it will be – especially given that the twiterverse is not hugely representative (although of course it may be balanced in its unrepresentativeness).  Stiil – it is worth watching today and it also illustrates the extent to which Twitter is a real time news resource – something that is only going to become more important as it (or something like it) gathers numbers.

Additional: You could also check out this via Google maps – who needs the news networks?
