We continue our series on Twitter, Today seeing Twitter as a platform for interviews and debates in real time, a feature little-known but very practical Twitter.
Last 18 October I had the honor to attend as a witness to the first “Twittervista” real-time Twitter, an interview between 5 election candidates held in Catalunya. Since the bandwidth of our country is painfully slow, a technology company created a specific software so that twitters may register before issuing your questions to cantidatos. But he failed response speed slightly, quye I have to say that the experience was interesting.
various hashtags were used to better follow the interview, including #Stic and # e10. In this page you can see the movement there was on Twitter during the interview.
What's new in this? Very easy, for the first time the public has been able to issue direct questions to political candidates. Anyone with a Twitter account, is not public pre-selected. I would call it democracy 2.0.
Of course, besides political talk can be made of other issues. Do you imagine Cristiano Ronaldo or Iniesta live answering questions from thousands of twiteros?
