Today, Twitter announced in a blog post that it will partner with CBS News for the Democratic presidential debate on Nov. 14, providing the network with real-time data and insights and questions from the Twittersphere.

This Twitter integration will inform our coverage and integrate seamlessly with CBSN, our always-on digital network.”
