AUSTRALIA— Social media monitoring agency BuzzNumbers has launched a tool to track Twitter coverage of Australia’s upcoming general election.

The firm has set up a new website, BuzzElection, that keeps tabs on the major election topic discussions, trending topics and contributions from “influential” Tweeters ahead of the August vote.

Tweets can be broken down by either city or state to see which regions are talking about which issues.
