With over 200 candidates in General Election 2011 having twitter accounts, social networking is going to play a huge role in deciding who gets the job of leading Ireland out of the most turbulent economic situation in the history of the state.
However even though almost 50% of election candidates are on twitter, their target audience is significently smaller. It is estimated that the precentage of Irish people with Twitter Accounts is around 6%!
Politweets.ie aims to bridge that gap by gathering the tweets from all candidates and presenting them in our easy to navigate website, making them equally accessible to non-twitter users and serial tweeters alike!!
