How to cover elections in real time

Journalists, members of Digital First Media and pretty much everyone else who wants to - are going to be taking part on the weekly Twitter chat at noon, Eastern Time.

Today's chat tackles Election Day! What are the best practices on using social media to gather and report information in real time for election? What tools can reporters and editors use? Is there anything journalists eat on Election Day that's not pizza? (Spoiler: NO). Bring your insights, links and your #REALTALK.

The feed is posted below. You can also check out past chats over here.
