OVERVIEW

For the 2012 US Elections, Telemundo’s real-time social campaigns were managed via Telescope’s powerful Connect Live social moderation platform.  Our end-to-end platform solution integrated with Chyron to power the social & mobile visual components of “Pulso Hispano” – Telemundo’s on-air social lounge around the Elections.

HOW IT WORKED

Telescope’s Connect Live Platform processed Twitter data with record-setting volume to capture tweets in real-time. Telemundo Producers were able to curate and approve best content to be pushed on-air during their 2012 US election coverage. Telemundo further engaged their audience with real-time topical Twitter polls and shared the results on-air.
