Here are two resources (descriptions from the Commission on Presidential Debates website) that you might want to know about.
MIT Media Lab’s Electome Project will be analyzing Twitter conversations about the election and will be offering a web-based dashboard in the debate site media filing centers that journalists can use to track and visualize how these conversations are changing before, during and after each debate.
The Social Media Analytic Command Center at Illinois State University will be examining the debates through public conversations from social media outlets, popular websites, and major blogs from eight different states. On their website and social media accounts, SMACC researchers will be displaying these social media conversations in dynamic charts, graphs, and other visualizations.
