Of all the social connectors that have sprung up to provide us escapist pleasure, it’s Twitter that has proven itself to be indispensable.
It’s Twitter that has actually changed the national conversation. It’s Twitter that has changed how journalists break and advance critically important (and, yes, even superficially comical) stories. It’s Twitter that has changed how politicians and celebrities control the message. It’s Twitter that has proven to be the prism through which all news now flows.
To that end, it’s now vital that there exists a national broadcast that looks at major news and political stories being driven by Twitter. That’s why HyperVocal’s Slade Sohmer and Lee Brenner teamed with SiriusXM to launch “Politics Powered By Twitter,” and that’s why SiriusXM decided to put us on air all night long on Tuesday — it’s “Election Night Powered By Twitter.”
We’ll be analyzing the election as seen on Twitter, along with some very special guests: Voto Latino CEO @MariaTeresa1, The Daily Caller’s @MattKLewis, POTUS’ @PeteDominick, Mashable reporter @AlexJamesFitz, The Atlantic’s @TheGarance, Fox News contributor @SallyKohn, NY Mag’s @StefanJBecket and many more.
Check it out on Tuesday night: Sirius channel 123, XM channel 130. We’re on regular time on POTUS 124 from 6-7 ET, then live again from 8 pm ET until at least 2 am, probably longer. Who needs sleep?
