Twitter to Livestream Bloomberg’s Debate Coverage

Let's get crazy.

Cs4V6T-WIAkiN1b.jpg-largeTwitter has partnered with Bloomberg Media to stream Bloomberg TV’s live coverage of the presidential and vice presidential debates. The first presidential debate is Monday, Sept. 26. It will likely be a shit show.

Twitter’s stream will also include a Bloomberg Politics program for 30 minutes prior to each debate. The show will be hosted by Bloomberg Politics managing editors Mark Halperin and John Heilemann.

“Bloomberg’s non-partisan political coverage stands out from the crowd for its independence and quality,” said Bloomberg Media CEO Justin Smith, in a statement. “By leveraging the power of Twitter’s enormous real-time platform for reaction and analysis, this partnership will provide viewers the opportunity to watch and interact with the news coming from this fall’s debates as they happen live on smartphones, computers and TVs.”

The debate streams will be available at, in Twitter’s Moments section or on Bloomberg Politics’ Twitter account @bpolitics.
