The 2016 presidential race is unlike anything we’ve seen in generations — and we’ve never had more tools to cover it. We’ll talk about the process for producing pieces on social platforms, from Vine to Snapchat to Twitter to Facebook to Instagram. We’ll also discuss how to do effective coverage with a small team, and how to keep political election content evergreen.
