Whitireia journalism students covering US election
NEWSWIRE is the website to follow for diverse live coverage of the US elections on Wednesday.
The Whitireia Journalism website will be running live updates of how the world and social media are covering the election.
We will also be offering a local perspective.
In Wellington team members will post news and photos from the US Embassy function in Wellington.
We will be talking to American visitors and election parties, and get local reaction.
The Newswire team plans to bring rolling updates from Twitter feeds and other social media such as Facebook, Tumblr and Reddit.
Critically we will be keeping watch on coverage of the swing states of Ohio, Florida Wisconsin, New Hampshire, Nevada, Iowa, Virginia and provide updates as they come through.
Other team members will be monitoring New Zealand and international media coverage and providing links and pointers to relevant stories on radio, TV, newspapers and blogs.
All of this will be centralised on this one website to give readers an easy-to-access summary of what is happening.
