Mitt Romney to Announce VP Pick Via Smartphone App This post originally appeared on our DC/politics site Distriction. How do we know it’s 2012? How do we know politics has changed completely? For the Romney campaign, the answer lies in one tweet leading to one app leading to the vice president pick. This, Tuesday morning. Leads you to download this. To find out who the VP pick will be. Hopefully it spells the VP’s name right. The Obama campaign, since it already has a VP, released an app that’s focused on canvassing and volunteering on Tuesday. Dueling apps!
