Abstract

The 2012 Presidential Election has been mentioned significantly on Twitter. The candidates, news media, citizen journalists, and voters have been participating in the discourse. Events including speeches, major events, and prominent gaffes have yielded interesting patterns. We developed a software tool to visualize Twitter buzz around candidates from the 50 most populous urban American cities.
