Lynn University Invites Tweeters To "Lounge" Around During Debate

Oct 16, 2012

Lynn University students are rolling out the digital red carpet for political watchers in advance of the last Presidential Debate of 2012.

The small Boca Raton university is hosting the final face-off between President Obama and his Republican challenger Mitt Romney on Monday, October 22nd.

Lynn spokesman Joshua Glanzer says the university enlisted a core group of student volunteers to interact with Twitter and Facebook users within the school's new Social Media Lounge.

"That will be a nearly 24-hour operation from Friday to Tuesday of people focusing just on social media," says Glanzer.  " And making sure that they reach out to students or anyone else who's engaged on the platforms around the debate."

Lynn University student volunteers are also harnessing Tumblr, FoursquareInstagram and Google + as a way of engaging debate audiences.

And WLRN is taking the Florida Roundup to Lynn University the Friday before the debate, for a Presidential Debate Special, hosted by Phil Latzman.  That's this coming Friday, October 19th.  You can reserve a seat for the Florida Roundup debate special at Lynn now.
