DFM chat: Mobile-friendly Election Day coverage

Digital First Media friends and other journalists, members of the community and fans of journalism are invited to take part in a Twitter chat Wednesday at noon, Eastern Time, to talk about all things journalism.

Today we’re talking about how to cover Election Day in real-time in a collaborative way and in a way that’s mobile friendly. That’s why today we are using hackpad, as an example of a collaborative document that could be used for real-time coverage (so you don’t have to write "refresh this page to see new results"). 

The feed is posted over at the blog, but you can also follow #dfmchat on Twitter. 

I’ll be adding resources from the chat in this very document. Feel free to add your own.
