McCain and Obama will tweet it out in Twitter debate
Starting tonight, a designated representative of both of the major presidential campaigns are going to participate in a free-wheeling debate on technology and government, moderated by Time magazine blogger Ana Marie Cox and channeled via Twitter. (Link)
The moderator will pose questions for the candidates’ reps to answer. The debate has no set end date.
Now, it would be way better if 1) the candidates themselves, not just their reps, were participating; 2) all topics, not just tech, were included; and 3) questions came from viewers, not just the moderator.
Still, isn’t this cool?
But does it deepen the political discussion by creating an ongoing, real-time, and open debate; or does it take the sound bite to the extreme by boxing candidates into 140-character maximums?
