    Twitter will be all over the upcoming political conventions. In fact, the GOP Convention has its own Twitter feed "@GOPconvention":http://www.twitter.com/GOPconvention

    You will not be surprised to hear that the upcoming political conventions in the U.S. will be all over social media. Not only will it be a hashtag bonanza on Twitter and a like-fest on Facebook, but both conventions will be live-streamed, gavel to gavel, on YouTube. So what’s your plan on tuning into the conventions? Are you skipping them this year? Will you follow on social media, live-streaming video, or the old-fashioned way on TV or radio? Vote in our poll below (you can pick multiple options) and share your thoughts on convention coverage in the comments below. To hear more about YouTube’s coverage, listen to this week’s Mediatwits podcast.
