Google and Twitter Partner For Super Tuesday: Political Twitters On A Google Map

Posted Feb 5, 2008

Today voters in 24 states are choosing their favorite presidential party candidates.  Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for the Democratic Party and John McCain, Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, and Ron Paul for the Republican Party.  Many states have already decided who they have picked based on vote tallies. 

Throughout the voting process, Americans were Twittering what their voting experiences were like.  And as they were Twittering, their profile would appear in a bubble on the Google Super Tuesday Map.  Google has been playing an interesting role throughout the entire presidential process.  YouTube was used for asking questions at the various debates, including questions asked by a snowman.

Below is a screen shot of the Google Super Tuesday Map in action:
