UK politics getting social…

Tonight saw the UK air its first TV debate between the three main party leaders. Amazing, a first in the UK but very much behind the times (Kennedy and Nixon did it in 1960!). ITV’s broadcast was for 90 minutes (with no commercial breaks…great stuff) and they streamed this live on their website along social streams from Facebook and a live comment stream on the site itself. A good start, but not as good as what Current TV gave us during the US Election in 2008. Integrating the real time of Twitter into the TV debates themselves. Love it…
