Debate 2.0

Last week during the presidential debate, the country was a-twitter. There were a bunch of sites doing some sort of realtime web 2.0 shows of the debate, with a lot of these using twitter and hashtags. If anyone knows of any sites that I haven’t listed below, please let me know

We had the TV, a couple of laptops, and a few bottles of wine going and it turned out to be great fun.

My favorite site was definitely Current’s Hack the Debate It displays the video/audio of the debate, as well as real time tweets that are tagged with #current. This is where I’ll be spending most of my time.

Twitter weighs in with http://election.twitter.com/

#tweetdebate was an experiment to use twitter to track in real time who is winning, this is tracked using search.twitter.com. See the [site](http://www.web-strategist.com/blog/2008/09/21/twitter-presidential- debates-sept-26/) for rules.
