President Obama’s State of the Union: What were the most Tweet-worthy moments?
As an awkward hush fell over the US Congress while President Obama was chuckling over (hypothetical) spilled milk, Twitter was on fire with people yucking it up at the president’s expense.

Riot rumours: how misinformation spread on Twitter during a time of crisis

A period of unrest can  provoke many untruths, an analysis of 2.6 million tweets suggests. But  Twitter is adept at correcting misinformation - particularly if the  claim is that a tiger is on the loose in Primrose Hill

Digging Into the Relationships in Sunlight’s Twitter Lobbyist List

On Wednesday Sunlight released a list of lobbyists tweeting online, allowing for collective insight into their world; who they follow; what they’re promoting; and a view of how they operate through the prism of Twitter.
