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.
