Twitter to livestream general election debates with Bloomberg Media
One of the most anticipated live events in decades is going to stream live on Twitter.
Twitter will livestream the first general-election debate on Sept. 26 as well as the proceeding ones thanks to a partnership with Bloomberg Media. The news comes just a day after ABC News announced it would stream its coverage on Facebook. Other networks have yet to reveal their digital plans.
Twitter has already become a go-to destination for political news, discussion and the not-so-occasional spat. The campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have sparred on Twitter on a regular basis.
