Reminder about tonight's debate

Earlier this week, I posted about Friday's debate and Jeremiah's debate scoring game.  As a reminder, the post is listed below.  But alot has changed in the fast moving world of Twitter since then.

. Personally, I agree with many of the writers above. I think the election site is a great way to tap into the audience's appetite for all things electoral.  It is most definitely a test of more group-oriented experiential feeds and quite possibly how Twitter will generate revenue, either via ads, sponsored groups, or something else.  And one more thing, before I forget, don't forget to tune in tonight and keep one eye on the TV and one eye on Twitter.
The first of 4 Presidential debates will be held on Friday, September 26, 2008 at 9PM Eastern. with domestic policy focus from the campus of The University of Mississippi, Oxford, MS.

You may recall last February's Super Bowl when Jeremiah Owyang organized a fun side-game where we all rated the commercials on Twitter. Well, Jeremiah has a great idea to utilize Twitter to rate the debates in a similar fashion.  Be the Armchair political analyst and use Twitter to Score the Debate has all of the details and scoring examples.  It should make the debates even more enjoyable and meaningful.  Let's hope that Twitter is up to the task and the Fail Whale does not appear.
