RCS' Bullet Powers Live Twitter Integration for US Midterm Election Debate
The RCS Twitter Bullet is a comprehensive social media command center and portable flightpack designed to help networks boost audience engagement. Combining proprietary software and middleware with advanced hardware, the robust solution offers plug-and-play functionality, making it easy for networks to quickly mine and creatively air live Tweets as graphics throughout broadcasts.
"Social media has revolutionized the way our country thinks and talks about elections; it's given voters a platform to not only voice their opinions, but also to have their voices heard. We're exited to see our Twitter Bullet a part of that," shared Jeff Heimbold, VP of Business Development, RCS. "Collaborating with Twitter on this project has been an amazing experience, and we look forward to seeing what they'd like to do next with the system for the 2016 election."
"Introducing live tweets to a broadcast like this allowed WTTW to capture the voices of voters at home in real-time and command calls to action that not only benefited the candidates, but also voters, parties and more," added Sean Evins, Partnerships Manager, Government & Elections, Twitter. "The more we integrate Twitter into the fabric of election conversations like these using tools like RCS' Bullet system, the better."
