Twitter keeps you up to date on the 2014 midterm elections

November brings midterm elections in the US, and Twitter is looking to lend a hand when it comes to keeping you informed on all the latest heading into next week. To do so, the social network developed the #Election2014 dashboard. As you might expect, the hub will monitor the political discourse in real time for key issues, candidate info, demographics and on-going discussion. From there, you can select your home state to catch up on all the local happenings, and, of course, the content is piped in through a smattering of hashtags, usernames and keywords. Twitter will also be sharing the info with its news cohorts like USA Today, MSNBC, and Bloomberg.
