Twitter dedicated presidential debate page

 Tonight’s first debate between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney is sure to provide tons of discussion, and Twitter wants his part of the cake.


 Twitter has dispatched all the members of its @gov team, where they will monitor the debate from the beginning and keep track of everything. To help Twitter users gather all the information, it launched today its dedicated Debates page.

Twitter wrote on a blog earlier today : “Whether you’re watching at home or on the go, you can see how the rest of the country is reacting on Twitter”. “We’ve launched to give you an easy way to keep up with journalists, political pundits, campaign staffers, elected officials, and other voters’ reactions to the candidates’ answers in real time. Our team on the ground here in Denver will be tweeting out interesting data points that occur throughout the night. So keep an eye on @gov and we’ll see you tonight — on Twitter.”

And Twitter isn’t alone in dedicating real estate to the debates. YouTube said earlier this week that it plans special streaming coverage of the debates as well.
