Widgets, Twitter and the 2008 Elections

by Mallary Tenore Tarpley

I recently came across two of the following features — widgets showing the 2008 primary delegate counters and “Politweets,” a site that features political-related Tweets, fed from Twitter. Does anyone know of other fun widgets/social networking tools that journalists are using to report on the 2008 elections?

In the spirit of the elections, I wrote an article for Poynter Online earlier this week about editorial endorsements, titled, “Endorsements: A Journalistic Obligation?” Feel free to share your thoughts on the piece.
