For those of you that might be interested, Current TV, the innovative network helped launched by Al Gore and friends, plans to “Hack” the debates by broadcasting your tweets over the actual presidential debate. The network known for audience participation and promotion of interactive viewing experiences, hopes that this will engage the audience not only on an entertainment level, but on an intellectual level as well. I know I will be there tweeting away (rebaenrose for those who care). If you also want to participate, Current TV instructs:
