As the New York Times has noted, this campaign has been fought, dissected and shared on forms of media that were merely a twinkle in 2004.
On election day, there are an overwhelming number of ways to tap into the pulse of voters.
And there are a slew of Twitter-related tools which aim to capture the zeitgeist of the election. NowPublic.com’s Scan tool, monitoring micro-blogging services like Twitter, is registering 1,000 posts an hour on the election.
Another couple of innovative ways of using Twitter are the I voted widget and the Twitter Exit Polls, showing how Twitterers voted. And Mashable has combines tweets and mapping to show the election results according to Twitter.
If all of this is too much, you can always sit back and tune into any of the 24-hour TV news channels that will be running wall-to-wall coverage of the results.
UPDATE: NowPublic.com have put together a bewildering compilation of all the ways to follow the US election results via social media.
