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 their 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.

If you're into politics, this is your app.

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. This way you can read your politician's tweets without following them and cluttering your timeline. In other words: "You don't need to follow to keep up"

Features:
-- The app auto-populates the list of tweeting politicians with first use
-- Thereafter, automatic updates of this list occur with each use of the app

-- Save a list of Favorite politicos - "3 taps to get results"

-- Embedded tweet links open inside the app
-- Special handling of YouTube video links
-- Bookmark embedded URLs
-- Save web pages for later offline viewing
-- or open them in Safari if you prefer

-- State-wide aggregation of tweet streams !


New features for 1.2:
-- In-app email to send tweets
-- In-app email to send embedded tweet link web pages
-- Send tweet to Safari
-- Custom feed aggregation - all your "favorite" politicos tweets in one view.


Updates - ongoing:
-- The politico twitter list is updated on a continuing basis, and will automatically download to your device with each use
