Social media involvement in the political sphere is becoming more & more common as Fox News teams up with Twitter to host what they call “the first Twitter election” in South Carolina tonight.

CNN used a Twitter hashtag to highlight debate reactions on its Web site last year; NBC News teamed up with Facebook for a debate; and ABC News promoted a way to see campaign “spin” in real time.
