Twitter Predicts #Iowa better Than Real Polls

In an amazing turn of events Mitt Romney beats Rick Santorum in the Iowa Caucus by only 8 votes. That is 0.000065% of the vote. Anyways no one predicted it…except twitter. All of the professional pollsters got it wrong because they polled random old people and missed the Young Vote. Twitter predicted Santorum winning after a huge comeback in recent weeks. Experts say that if the caucus had been a day later he would have won. So how about that? Another use for social media.
