Politweets is a political quiz which is based on the Tweets from the French-speaking candidates of the seven main political parties in Switzerland.

During a round, the player is presented with a series of Tweets from the candidates, and the aim of the game is to guess the political party of each candidate based solely on the textual content of their Tweets.

At the end of the round, before the results are shown, the player is asked about his or her political affinity (left, center or right). This additional information is stored with the results to generate a new dataset that can later be used to compare the players' perception relative to their affinity. Finally, the player is presented with a graph showing the number of right answers for each of the seven political parties.

Politweets was first developed during the Elections Hackdays which were held on September 4 and 5, 2015 in Lausanne (Switzerland).
