What is the main question during elections? I suppose “What do you do?” Going to the elections or not. But now the citizens of the USA can easily answer the question “What do you think?” and that is absolutely logical. It is very interesting to know what do people think about candidates, how do they evaluate their talks and debates. That is a great message not only to know the results of the elections but for the election candidates, too. They get information, personal opinion of people for free.
Today the users can upload his/her opinion on the blog http://election.twitter.com/ . And be asked the question “What do you think?” I guess it is very good initiation. According to the Elections 2008 the answer to the question “What is this?” is as follows: “We’re filtering hundreds of Twitter updates per minute to create a new source for gathering public opinion about the presidential election and a new way for you to share your thoughts.”
Among the candidates we can identify Barack Obama, Johm McCain, Joe Biden, and Sarah Palin. It is very interesting whether the thoughts of citizens and the final results of the election correspond to each other. Making this statistic will be really informative in this direction.
