2012 U.S. election widgets…already?

November 9th, 2009

Here we are, late in 2009 and already there is a jump on the widgets and banners for the 2012 U.S. Presidential Election.

I don’t believe I am yet over the barrage of radio, television and Internet political advertising.

Some of these widgets are just simple banner embeds and others are relavent sources of political news that will deliver candidate related information as the campaign approaches.

First up is, of course Ron Paul.

DraftRonPaul.com

There are 5 total “DraftRonPaul” banners that are designed to fit nicely on any blog sidebar or header. These come from Trevor Lyman, the architect of the original RonPaul money bomb.

Here is a scrolling widget that serves up the latest U.S. political news from a wide variety of sources such as Time Magazine, Reuters, CNN, ABC News and more. (grab the code right from the widget) This widget is powered by FeedZilla.

You will also be able to find iPhone apps to download:
2012 US Election 3.0.1
or 2012 US Election 3.0.1

Don’t forget the Apple desktop:
2012 Election countdown widget.
2012_election_2

…and from Widgetbox:

2012_election_1
The 2012 Presidential Election from Widgetbox.

Perhaps a Poll?Try Toluna poll widgets? Here is an example:

As you can see, there are already many choices this early in the game. You can bet that it will only get more crowded as the campaign heats up.

Twitter Tag: A Simple Twitter Active Badge Generator

Twitter Tag is a Active Badge Generator just like Tweetsnap. it may not have a site anywhere close as pretty as Tweetsnap and the badge may be more generic but it actually got more features into it.

  • 1.- You can Customize the colors in it to your heart content.
  • 2.- It detects the client used (for example mine shows i tweet from SocialThing or Twhirl
  • 3.- Uses Time Track Stamp instead of date tags
  • 4.- Shows how many updates you have done so far in Twitter

So the only bad thing i see to it is that it is too Generic Looking and that it don`t has versions. you can only choose one size.

Since it got Stats, it would be nice to have the full user stats in the badge like Updates//Friends//Followers in a better font and solve the look issues by allowing custom background or background options.

Like Tweetsnap you can grab the code and use your Twitter Tag Badge everywhere, from your blog, to social networks, to forums and even E-mails.
