US Presidential Candidates Debate on Twitter

Well it SAYS it is an Obama/ McCain Twitter Debate, however, it is really some of their advisors. However, there is a “twitter” debate between the two candidates nonetheless.

How does it work?

How to play along:

1) You can “follow” all three particpants via Twitter:

2) Or you can search for their Tweets on Summize, using the “#pdfdebate” tag as a search term. (See Twitterfan wiki on how hashtags work — this means you don't have to be on twitter to follow it.)

3) Third option: A “Tweetboard” which lays out all of the players, side-by-side. (They listed this third option — how to do this — I have no clue – there is no link.)

I wish the candidates themselves were answering the questions, but then again, I'm not sure that they ever really do anyway.
