ABC News’ Nightline is expanding its ongoing relationship with Twitter to develop NightTline, a new half-hour digital program hosted by the show’s anchors and correspondents that provides a forum for viewers to simultaneously discuss and debate the news of the day through Twitter. It will be available for viewing on the Nightline page at ABCNews.com, http://abcnews.go.com/Nightline/. It can also be viewed on ABC News NOW, the network’s 24-hour digital channel. New visualization of Twitter using Pixel touch screen technology will be employed for the first time on the site.
“Nightline has been a pioneer in its embrace of Twitter,” said James Goldston, Nightline‘s executive producer. “This new collaboration provides an ideal venue for news and Twitter enthusiasts alike.”
The first episode of NightTline will be broadcast on Wednesday, May 13, at 12:30 p.m., ET. Episodes will take on the program’s “Face-Off” model, a live debate on issues being discussed on the national stage, which Nightline has made successful in its recent on-air programming.
To date, Nightline and its anchors and correspondents have more than one million Twitter followers. Nightline and the program’s anchors and correspondents can be found on Twitter at http://twitter.com/Nightline.
