Smack A Candidate

Brooklyn Nets' high-tech arena, the new Myspace, Google Field Trip and more in our look at the web this week

Smack A Candidate is taking the political race to Twitter in a clever way, allowing people to voice opinions, show support and ask questions. Prompted to either #smackromney or #smackobama, with each Tweet written a “punch” is delivered to the desired candidate. The Smack A Candidate website keeps full track of punches received, and sets matches on specific days, all leading up to the 6 November 2012 election.
