Politweets insight into US Elections through twitter

Talk about a fascinating discussion for current events courses, Politweets is a website hat extracts candidate names from the tweets and organizes them by democractic and republican. (hat tip Bloggers Blog) It is really a fascinating use of Twitter.

I could imagine more uses for educators: If one could have all of the educators RSS'ed together (you could by following everyone who was an educator) -- and then do some sort of word cloud -- what are educators most saying?

RSS is a fascinating, amazing tool that we are just now getting a handle on. Even more useful than tagging, the ability to word cloud and aggregate WHAT people are saying will allow us to spot patterns heretofore unrecognized.
