Twitter Will Be Streaming the Solar Eclipse Today

Time and Date
Today (Monday August 21st), a substantial portion of the United States will be able to witness a solar eclipse. In certain areas, the moon will completely cover the sun, plunging the areas in question into darkness for up to a few minutes. For the first time, Twitter is going to be broadcasting a comprehensive live-stream of the event itself.

Starting from 12pm ET, they will be showing live footage from every state where the eclipse reaches totality, or anything close to it, including Idaho, Illinois, Kentucky and South Carolina. The footage itself is being provided by NASA, but there will also be real time storm tracking and drone footage included and the whole thing will be presented by Weather Channel meteorologists/weather reporters Domenica Davis and Ari Sarsalari.

Twitter will also be inviting users to submit their own images and videos of the event. As if that wasn't enough, there are also a number of interactive features planned, as well as a 'Fact Off' game show featuring the hosts of the Part Time Genius podcast and even footage of a joint wedding planned to take place during the eclipse. Lastly, Twitter are teaming up with Red Bull to broadcast a cliff diving event, during which divers will leap into the water while the sun is being blotted out.

In essence, Twitter is turning into eclipse HQ, and it's easy to understand why. Total solar eclipses only happen one or two times a century. Last time this happened, we had nowhere near the means to share images and footage in real time that we do now. Twitter already have an established reputation as a source of the most up-to-date content, so it makes sense that they would want to capitalise on this.

Following it all is simple, all you need to do is follow this link on Twitter and wait for all the fun to start, but the feed can also be followed through the Weather Channel's official website and their app. However you choose to follow it, this is not something to be missed.
