Dial test, fact check the McCain-Obama debate from your living room

NPR is attempting a nifty experiment using the micro-blogging service, Twitter, to instantly fact check and rate on a scale of 1-10 John McCain and Barack Obama’s statements from the comfort of your own home.

If you want to join in, include the hashtags #factcheck and/or #dialtest in your tweet.



    Hint: to speed up the pace of the tweets, hit your refresh button.

    And for the truly geeky among us the ratings are being visually plotted. To add your rating tweets to the graph, add @plodt to your tweet.

    Feel free to use this post as an open thread for your comments on the debate.
