I have to say, before this election, I was with Guido when he said, I don’t understand what Twitter’s all about. Now it’s been creatively put to work, I do! The BBC’s Pods and Blogs blog have picked up on IrishElection.com’s Twitter text service – which incidently tells us you don’t need to be signed up to Twitter get the result text – though it seems David Cochrane was ahead of the game. Chris also has an audio interview with IrishElection ‘queenpin’ Suzy Byrne on the thinking planning and preparation behind the project.
