In a statement published Oct. 26, Twitter announced it would partner with CBS News for the second Democratic presidential debate in November. "Our people have worked with Twitter's unique curator tools to measure changing responses to what viewers will see on the screen," CBS News president David Rhodes said in the statement. "This Twitter integration will inform our coverage and integrate seamlessly with CBSN, our always-on digital network."
