Twitter: The ultimate presidential debate watch party

by Thomas Beutel

I know that many people will be gathering at watch parties this Friday, but I plan to watch it at home with Twitter. The 140 character format seems to be just right for getting a river of concise, first-blush commentary. I plan to spend this afternoon following a few more people, so that I have a nice variety of tweets to consume.

Hopefully Twitter is up to the task and won’t fail-whale us.

Update 9/26/08: Twitter launches election site tonight. Bravo!
