Tracking Twitter Conversations:

Ironically, I just picked this up on a Twitter feed. Its a web site that tracks Twitter hits of terms related to Obama vs. McCain. It seems to be a continually, dynamically-generated web site that shows the number of hits for each candidate based on certain key terms the web site is analyzing.

For instance, a glance right now (and it changes every few seconds, so you may not see the same thing when you look), shows a lot of red (McCain) compared to blue (Obama) for terms like “maverick” and “recession”. Presumably, this means these terms are being used in Twitter conversations relating more to McCain than Obama.

An interesting introspection into American politics through the eyes of the Twitter membership.

  1. Hi Jim ~ Happen to be working on this site with Tropicana and came across your blog! Really appreciate you checking it out and sharing with your readers.

    The embedding function is up and running as well, which makes it great if you want to have the updated version constantly running on your site.

    Let me know if there is anything I can do, feel free to get in touch 🙂
