We want to show you what we’re calling our NOW Twicker. It’s been part of our show from the beginning - showing tweets from members of the NBC News team, other journalists we follow and some of our guests that are regular tweeters. We try and find the most recent and interesting Tweets, relevant to our conversation at the time. The Twicker replaces the standard news scroll and informational 2-line banners you see regularly elsewhere.
What do you think?
Today we took it a little further. We decided to live tweet the President today - including tweets from Alex, the NOW team and our on set panel. Some quotes, some insight - but it was live, immediate reaction to what we were all watching. And as you can see in these screen shots, we also used Facebook status updates.
It’s definitely unique to us and we like that! But even more, we like that it gives our viewers a little something different too. We hope you like the NOW Twicker as much as we do!
