The Sunlight Foundation, in their quest to have an infinite number of projects starting with “Polit” (joining (Poligraft and Politiwidgets), debuted Politwoops today. It’s a tool for tracking the deleted tweets of political figures, currently limited to presidential candidates and members of Congress, including this doozy from U.S. Rep. Jeff Miller.

The code comes from the Open State Foundation in the Netherlands, which created the original Dutch version, which has spread to other countries in Europe (plus Canada).
