Tweeting the Vote

A Baltimore-area technology developer named David Troy has created Twitter Vote Report, a service that allows voters across the country to complain about situations at their polling places. Of course, that’s not the only high-tech way to complain. In this election, voters who don’t want to tweet can upload videos of their polling place to YouTube. Or hook into an iPhone ap. Or call a hotline. As Paul Logan, CEO of Contact Solutions, which developed 1-877-GOCNN-08, puts it, “What this technology does is give the chickens a microphone.” We chickens are grateful.
