App DescriptionpoliticoTracker Twitter Edition for iPad is a Tweet Reader, pre-configured so you can easily track US politician's tweets.
There is a surprising (or perhaps not) number of our elected officials in the Tweetosphere. With this app you'll be able to quickly scan not only individual timelines, but also see all tweets by members from a particular state at once, giving you a unique aggregate view of the local political scene.
As a read-only Twitter app, you do NOT need a Twitter account to use politicoTracker Twitter Edition. If you do have an account, use this app as a companion to your regular full-featured Twitter app.
