Talking Twitter at the #GOP2012 Convention

While we’re here in Tampa, we’ve been talking to journalists, candidates, political pundits and others about the way Twitter has influenced the election and their work. Today, we’re talking with Ben Smith, Editor-in-Chief of BuzzFeed.com. @BuzzFeedBen and his team are among the most-followed political reporters on Twitter. Their groundbreaking approach to Twitter for election coverage is as worthy of buzz as the campaigns themselves. The New Republic recently described Buzzfeed’s election coverage as “central to the political conversation on Twitter.”

Here’s more from Ben on integrating Twitter into BuzzFeed reporting:
