A live-tweeting example

In case you missed it: Daniel Moran and Damaris were live-tweeting the interviews of the two finalists for the office of UF president on Wednesday, Oct. 15.

Here is a Storify of their tweets. Note the high numbers of RTs and faves on some of these!

Note that a crucial moment was the announcement of the new president, which came very swiftly after the interviews ended.
