The great healthcare debate

we love the nhs

The scale of the debate that Obama’s healthcare reform has sparked in this country is quite extraordinary.  The social media campaign ‘We (heart) the NHS’ has recieved a huge amount of support online as well as significant amounts of coverage in the mainstream media.  The hashtag #welovethe nhs has become one of the top 6 trends on the global twitter site and is now trending at over 750 new Tweets every 5 seconds! 

Above is a screen grab of a really nice widget created by Alex Smith (of labourlist) that pulls in all tweets using the hashtag #welovethenhs and publishes them on rotation.  A simple idea, executed well that will sustain and spread the campaign even further.
