Election 2008 – powered by Twitter

For anyone using Twitter and Twitter Search these days it’s hard not to notice the activity around events.

Whether it’s during the G1 announcement, playoff games, the WWDC or political events like the RNC or DNC.

Those events trigger a heavy use of Twitter.

Last night the team at Twitter launched a special page at election.twitter.com. The idea is to display trending topics about the election as well as a filter of all Twitter updates in real time for the various candidates. Jack Dorsey the ceo of Twitter sums it all up the best with this tweet.

I’m really excited about this.  Twitter & democracy in action!
