CNN’s recent State of the Union experiment and MTV’s Video Music Awards effort are recent examples. The Twitter tracker captures everything going on the Olympic games. It’s a funny though.
The Olympic Twitter Tracker is developed by Stamen Design. NBC provides this tracker. They worked about this with Stamen Design. The feature was announced on the Twitter blog this week, and Twitter posted a video demo (below).
