Tweetminster – aggregating political conversations

I discovered Tweetminster yesterday as I followed the election of the new Speaker of the House. Tweetminster is a relatively simple idea – it aggregates and publishes Parlimentarians’ tweets (though it would seem that the eventual winner, John Bercow, doesn’t yet Tweet).

And there’s value in this, because without spending time following every Twittering politician (assuming you know their user info) there isn’t an easy way to aggregate this kind of info in Twitter.

Personally speaking, I think we’ll see more places publishing aggregated discussions – pulling together feeds from across the web, possibly filtering them and republishing them in aggregated form.

(On a side note, I really love the site design and UI, which is not something I say much about many sites associated with Government.)
