First it was blogging, then it was YouTube – now Twitter is now involved in the US’s presidential coverage, after launching its election website using the recently acquired Summize to showcase all the tweets made by users, along with specific filters for all both the Republican and Democratic candidates, John McCain and Barack Obama, while showing their own tweets in a special section.

It has also partnered up with Current TV to help in its election coverage, allowing the “tweets” to be displayed on-screen during the presidential debates.
