We continue the series dedicated to Twitter, today seeing Twitter as a platform for real-time interviews and discussions, a little-known Twitter feature but very practical.
The past 18 October I had the honor of attending as a witness to the first “Twittervista” Twitter's real-time, an interview between 5 election candidates that took place in Catalonia. Since our country's bandwidth is woefully slow, a technology company created specific software so that twitteros could register before issuing their questions to the cantidatos. Although the response speed failed slightly, I have to say that the experience was interesting.
Various hashtags were used to better follow the interview, between them #Stic and #e10. In this Page you can see the movement that was on Twitter during the interview.
What's new in this? Very simple, for the first time the public has been able to issue direct questions to political candidates. Anyone with a Twitter account, it's not about pre-selected audience. I'd call it democracy. 2.0.
Of course, in addition to political interviews can be done on other topics. Can you imagine Cristiano Ronaldo or Iniesta answering live questions from thousands of twiteros?
