Twitter has 2,000 employees, but no women on its board.

Later today Barack Obama will be publicly sworn in as President of the United States Of America, and as the buzz builds across the Twitter the timing couldn’t have been any better.

As of Friday, all 100 members of the Senate, and 90 percent of the 398 members of the House Of Representatives have active Twitter accounts.

Back in 2011, just 44 percent of the Senate and 35 percent of the House were active on Twitter. There are 29 States with their entire delegation tweeting, and every State across America boasts a delegation tweeting rate of at least 70 percent. Not bad for a platform that was just getting started when President Obama was first elected.

Obama Vs Romney – Whose Tweets Are Getting The Most Engagement On Twitter (And Where)? [MAP]

Twitter has been very hands-on in the run-up to the 2012 U.S. Presidential Election, and both President Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney have (wisely) been heavily using the micro-blogging platform to share their agenda and policies, raise awareness of where they are on the campaign trail and, perhaps, nudge those all-important undecided voters firmly in their direction.

Obama Vs Romney: Who Is The Real Commander In Tweet? [INFOGRAPHIC]

We’re just a few short weeks away from the 2012 U.S. Presidential Election, and suddenly it’s all getting very serious indeed.

On Wednesday (Oct. 3), President Barack Obama debated with Republican nominee Mitt Romney at the University of Denver, trading barbed remarks and facts (or “facts”, as some pundits have suggested of Romney) in a heated contest that could decide the next occupant of the Oval Office. But who won? How did Twitter react? What’s the word from the peanut gallery?
