Republican Party

As of right now, a Republican presidential debate is set to take place on July 20th. Just like everyone would expect, the event will include most of the major Republican candidates. At first glance, this debate appears to be like every other that will transpire over the next year leading up the 2012 presidential election. For all intents and purposes, it is a normal Republican debate…right…?

Well, sort of. The July 20th debate will take place via Twitter. Now you may be wondering how a debate can be possibly be done through a social networking website. In order to make this work, the company 140 Dev, LLC has developed an online debate platform. This website, www.140TownHall.com, will display tweets by the debaters, the moderator, and the general public. With Twitter, users will be able to interact with the candidates in a way that has never been possible.

Any interested Twitter users out there? Tune in on July 20th and become part of the conversation!
