    [SMS] IMPACT: Mobile Marketing Absent From U.S. Elections; Will We Appreciate Advertising On Twitter?
    Of these 19 apps can access their location and five apps can access their SMS and MMS messages. The U.S. midterm elections” were held this week. Did mobile really make a difference in any race? The prediction that the Democrats were going to lose seats in the Senate and House of Representatives came true. But, judging from the absence of mobile in campaign efforts (at least in my home state of Washington), political parties and interest groups lost much more: the opportunity to reach us on our mobile phones. Fast forward to 2010 and mobile is the missed opportunity. Way too many.
