We are also seeing an active virtual community at this site AFL-CIO video stream with real time channel.

Watching the tweets with geolocation tags from around Madison Capitol have surged during the day after the 16:00 deadline for protesters to leave the Capitol, we saw a major surge. Tweet levels raised from 16 on our scale to 50, a massive rise. Track in real time. We seeing more first person accounts on the Madison hashtag on twitter.

It seems that the protests in Madison is now making heavy use of twitter and other Web 3.0 tool on mobile devices is increasing. We have been surprised by the sudden rise in activity on both the hashtag and the intensity of tweets.
