Fox News ties Twitter to real-time debate feedback

During Thursday night’s GOP debate, FoxNews.com tracked real-time Twitter feedback by using two hashtags, #answer and #dodge. When viewers felt a candidate was answering the question, they tweeted #answer along with the candidate’s name. And when a candidate was avoiding it, #dodge. The results were compiled in real-time on FoxNews.com, powered by Mass Relevance:

The hashtags evaluated the candidate’s performance overall, not by specific question. Fox News tells us that it counted 150,000 tweets with the two hashtags during the two-hour debate. And not surprisingly perhaps, Ron Paul’s social-savvy supporters helped him lead the way positive #answer tweets for much of the night.
