The world of social media is a complex and competitive environment. Whether it’s Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat, each social media platform is consistently working to improve its image and its credibility. Twitter announced this morning that it has partnered with CBS News for the coming Democratic debate, which will be held on November 14th. At this event, Twitter will be providing CBS News with live data from the event as well as live questions and reactions from viewers around the country. CBS News also plans to use this live Twitter feed in their coverage. Although Twitter has worked at other political events, this will be the first debate that Twitter has an official presence.
This partnership with CBS News will likely be a huge benefit for Twitter. The upcoming debate will give Twitter an opportunity to showcase what it actually does. Personally, I am very interested in politics and I always watch the presidential debates. If Twitter gives viewers like myself, a chance to ask questions and make comments about the debate, it will give them a more interactive experience. Using Twitter’s real-time data and insights will also make for a better overall debate. It will ensure that the debate focuses on the topics that the viewers want to be discussed rather than only discussing the topics they have picked out beforehand. Twitters recent partnership with CBS News for the upcoming debate was brilliant decision. Its real-time data and its interactive features will continue to show people that Twitter is a legitimate social media platform.
