Are you following the campaigns of the Democrats or the Republicans for the U.S. presidential election? There are several debates scheduled between the two candidates in the following weeks leading up to the election in November 2016.
But you don’t have to turn on the TV to watch the debates, Twitter and Bloomberg has announced a partnership to stream Bloomberg Television’s live broadcast of the 2016 U.S. Presidential and Vice Presidential debates on Twitter.
Twitter will stream Bloomberg Television’s live broadcast of the scheduled U.S. Presidential and Vice Presidential debates, beginning on Monday, September 26th. The stream will also include special Bloomberg Politics programming thirty minutes before and after each debate, which will be led by Bloomberg Politics Managing Editors Mark Halperin and John Heilemann. Additional Bloomberg Politics talent, reporting, and expert analysis will contribute to the coverage.
“Twitter is where the 2016 presidential election is happening every single day,” said Anthony Noto, Twitter’s chief financial officer. “Livestreaming the debates with Bloomberg combined with the live commentary and conversation on Twitter will create a one-screen experience at the center of the action unlike any other.”
The stream will be available globally at debates.twitter.com, in Twitter Moments or on @bpolitics. Bloomberg is Twitter’s exclusive streaming partner for the debates.
