Current & Twitter have teamed up for the very first time to integrate real-time Twitter messages (aka "tweets") over major portions of a live television broadcast.

Hack the Debate by adding your Twitter posts to our live broadcast of the 2008 Presidential Debates.

  1. 1. Tune in on September 26th at 9pm EST/ 6pm PST for the Live Presidential Debate. Find Current TV on your local cable/satellite provider or come here to watch the live stream of our broadcast.

  2. 2. Make sure you’ve registered with Twitter to participate.

  3. 3. During the debates, chime in by including "#current" in your tweet. Example:
    "This discussion about universal healthcare makes me want to pop some pills! #current"

  4. 4. We won't be able to air every single tweet on TV, but you can see all of the #current tweets by searching #current on Twitter search.

  5. 5. If you have any questions about participating, send us a tweet @current.
