How To Watch The Republican National Convention
Political junkies, if you’re looking to experience the Republican National Convention, there’s no reason to actually travel to Tampa. Beyond the estimated 15,000 members of the press taking photos, live tweeting and generally getting in each other’s way, you can watch the entire broadcast on the RNC’s YouTube Channel, part of YouTube’s 2012 Elections Hub.
You can also watch live video feeds from many, many other channels, like ABC and C-SPAN. Keeping track of the conversation across Twitter means watching the #RNC2012 or #GOP2012 hashtags on Twitter or Trendsmap, or checking out the Washington Post’s newly launched ‘Grid’ which pulls in live feeds of photos and conversation, which you can curate or leave unfiltered.
