How Twitter Could Have Swayed the World Series

Texas Rangers and St. Louis Cardinals come out winners as All Star Game vote taps into Twitter

Twitter's potential effect on who wins the World Series this year appears to now be a moot point, but the micro-blogging site had its shot today. Major League Baseball let fans vote with tweets during a four-hour period on Thursday in order to determine the final two players in the All Star Game, an eight-decade-old midsummer event pitting the National League vs. American League that will be held in Kansas City on Tuesday. The winning league gains home field advantage for the seven-game World Series in October.
