"Nightline" is expanding its ongoing relationship with Twitter to
develop "NightTline," a new half-hour digital program hosted by the
show’s anchors and correspondents that provides a forum for viewers to
simultaneously discuss and debate the news of the day through the prism
of Twitter.

Join the Conversation With Nightline Wednesdays at 12:30 p.m. ET

It will be available for viewing on the "Nightline" page at ABCNEWS.com.
It can also be viewed on ABC News Now, the network’s 24-hour digital
channel. New, unique visualization of Twitter using Pixel touch screen
technology will be employed for the first time on the site.

"Nightline" has been a pioneer in its embrace of Twitter," said
James Goldston, "Nightline’s" executive producer. "This new
collaboration provides an ideal venue for news and Twitter enthusiasts
alike."

Episodes will take on the program’s popular "Face-Off"
model, a live debate on issues being discussed on the national stage,
which "Nightline" has made successful in its recent on air programming.

To date, "Nightline" and its anchors and correspondents have more than 1 million Twitter followers.
