No matter which political side you’re on, you’ll enjoy the chatter on Twitter which “makes the (political) pundits obsolete before they can even get to their microphones.”
Twitter […] is for interests. The people you follow are the people you would be happy to debate in the lunch hall. You can track hashtags for particular topics and events. You can scroll quickly past a tweet that isn’t providing nutrition. You can skip right to relevance and slake your thirst for instant context and community. […] On Twitter, you are part of the conversation, part of the political process, creator and consumer of your own campaign narrative. Even though not every voter is on Twitter – it has only 140 million users worldwide – the influencers are. And yes, that was also true of the 2008 election. But not on this scale, not with this emotional force, and not, by any means, to the extent where you could sensibly claim that 140 characters can swing an election.
