Twitter doesn't want its live US election coverage to stop with the debates. It's partnering with BuzzFeed News on a show for election night, November 8th. Visit Twitter starting at 6PM Eastern and you'll get a steady stream of results and analysis as the votes pour in. And you might have reason to tune in through the social network instead of resorting to TV. The two companies are working with volunteer data outfit Decision Desk HQ to make calls on election results instead of leaning on a single source, like conventional broadcasters.

Be ready for the occasional interruption. BuzzFeed and Twitter will roll "TV style" commercials in between segments, so you're not quite escaping the usual election night experience. Nonetheless, this could be more than a little helpful if you want to keep up with the vote wherever you happen to be.
