Second Life Twitter Mashup Shows Tweets About Candidates

October 4, 2008 -

Second Life users can now follow what Twitter users are saying about the presidential tickets.

Steve Nelson of SL's Capitol Hill area writes:

I've installed a new display at Capitol Hill in Second Life that streams Twitter tweets about candidates.  The tweets float above columns, and are refreshed every minute with a search for Obama, Biden, McCain or Palin. You can also talk to the display to get the latest tweets about an individual candidate. Touch a column, and you get the original post on Twitter that you can use to follow links, etc...

 

As for me, joining the discussion in Second Life, with an eye on the Twitter election channel, and another eye on my TV, makes my head explode.

Wow, tweeter has some links posted on it to articles from the washington post and other locations that show what McCain really is...  Just wow...  He is a disgrace to this nation.

He can't possibly be THAT bad.

First person to break during torture as a POW, speaking out about bombing schools and innocent communities...  Cheating on his wife countless times even after being a POW, which is when he says he became a changed man. 

Done so many things that if he wasnt the son and grandson of highly respected people in the armed forced, he would be in prison in the US, let alone being kicked out after his first plane crash, wait before then, spitting on a superior officer, wait there is more but mainly repeat offenses of spitting/insulting/acting as a child toward people, destroying government property (worth more money than he has made his whole life), took out power to section a foreign country because he flew off the flight plan trying to show off and flew threw power lines, got shot down only because he refused to follow basic manuvers that would have saved his plane while he could have also completed his mission instead of trying to pull off the mission alone to look like a hero and advance his career which has been his goal all along... 

I didn't even get to the 4th page of the 10 page article about McCain's life.

This guy is a horrible person, and I still don't like Obama, but while I only 20% support Obama, I 150% support against McCain.  I want to ask for a relection...

I am beginning to think that every presidential nominee should be forced to go through 1 month of interigation non-stop.  Find out what these people are really like before letting them run this country...

Also, Palin has no idea what she is getting into, her belief system is far different than most Americans, especially about dinosaurs, and with McCain's health, she is very likely to be president if McCain is elected because of his poor health.

McCain has a daddy complex, and acts like a child.  If anything, this man needs to put in a home.

Re: Second Life Twitter Mashup Shows Tweets About Candidates

No, it is just what the article says, and after seeing the crap on Fox News, it balances out the BS I hear about each canidate.

Okay, I will somewhat balance it out.  Bill Ayers did some protest explosions and did decent property damage, but hurt no people.  McCain's camp, and many other people, qualifty these acts when Ayers was in his early 20s as terrorist acts.  Though Ayers did do this in his youth, and is no longer doing such acts, but says that he should have done more bombings to attract more attention.

Obama also smokes cigarettes, family members, and church folks of his have been known to be extermist pro-black, with his brother sayiack man must liberate himself from the poisons of European cultures and western values".  Doesn't that make him sound educated.

McCain did not qualify for college, and had to pull political strings with his dads rank to get in. Obama went to Havard on his own marit.

Obama has only been around for 60% of the Senate votes, and McCain has only been around for 40% of the Senate votes.  Neither are admorable, as the only other person who ranked that bad was someone that was around for only about 55% of the senate votes, and he has major healther problems that prevented him from doing his job for a few months.

Even Biden said that Obama wasn't fit for the job before he was VP.

The CIA and FBI have refused to research certain facts that could qualify are critical about both canidates.

McCain is very likely to die of old age before the end of the term, Obama is almost as likely to get knocked off by some red neck before the end of the term, which is why I am interested in VP people, and Palin is crazy, and Joe is a douche.  I rather have a douche than a crazy person, but that is my opinion.

No matter who is in office, the house and senate are checking systems to make sure that these guys are doing their jobs right anyways.  Wait, I don't really trust them either...  but either of these groups are better than Bush and Chaney either way, and I have yet to find someone who things otherwise on that statement.

Re: Second Life Twitter Mashup Shows Tweets About Candidates

Are you fucking kidding me?! The bomb that killed Ayers's comrades was a nail bomb designed by Ayers. The fact that he didn't kill anybody is because he and his associates are incompetent, not because they didn't try. "Protest bombings" are unnacceptable terrorist acts, no matter the reason for them. It isn't just McCain who would call them terrorist acts, either. Every reasonable observer would, the same way that they would call 9/11 a terrorist act.

 

Re: Second Life Twitter Mashup Shows Tweets About Candidates

Hadn't seen that story yet, but snap, that is insane...  then you have the bomb warehouse that went up and a lady was running nude to a getaway car because her cloths burned off...  God knows the injuries she had...  Okay, more crazy than I was getting after digging even deeper...

Re: Second Life Twitter Mashup Shows Tweets About Candidates

It's actually a little worse bro. Ayers's main goal is to indoctrinate kids into becoming domestic terrorists themselves. He sees the United States as fundamental evil in the world and wants it gone. The big reason that conservatives and Republicans are pissed at Obama because of this is because Obama funded MILLIONS into Ayers's brainwashing programs. Obama and Ayers's also worked together on "reforming" the prison system. That wouldn't be in and of itself a bad thing, but Ayers's idea of "reform" is to abolish prisons altogether. To add to the connection, Obama launched a campaign (Senate, I think) from Ayers's house, and Ayers's has worked as a bundler for the Obama campaign. I don't like McCain, but I despise Obama. He and his close friends are little more than racists and Marxists and the fact that he can stand such people to any degree indicates that he shares their views, even if he isn't as extreme as them.

Re: Second Life Twitter Mashup Shows Tweets About Candidates

Because the Rolling Stone Magazine and website are great sources for fair and balanced information on anything, let alone politics.  That's like asking PETA to tell the truth about their views on pet ownership; you're not going to get the truth, just what they want you to hear.

Does the Obama camp pay you to spread its bullshit?

E. Zachary KnightAccording to this link, the pizzeria owner did not actually refuse anyone service. He was ask by a reporter if he would cater to a gay wedding and he answered in the negative. When that was published, the rants came rolling in.04/01/2015 - 8:17pm
