Twitter, TV & politics #win

The perfect mix for an electoral night with hashtag monitoring

Press, radio or Television used to be essential to know what was happening related to Politics. Twitter has proven today to be the perfect tool to track and share the latest.

So perfect combinations arise for tracking relevant issues in a comprehensive manner. An example was given yesterday in the coverage of Catalonia’s Election where RTVE included in his great display set a huge screen where they supplemented the information with data from Twitter in real time on Television.
