How to get instant updates from the Democratic National Convention.

After two weeks, dozens of hours spent in front of the tube, and a whopping 600 posts on the SlateOlympics Twitter feed, the Beijing Games are finally over. Slate's grand Twitter experiment hasn't ended, though. We've had such a good time with the Olympics that we've decided to keep things going at a new address.

Starting today, we're retiring our SlateOlympics account and moving over to http://www.twitter.com/Slate. In our first post-Olympics foray, we'll be tweeting about the Democratic National Convention. Join us throughout the week for updates from the convention floor in Denver, as well as superfast takes from Slate writers and editors watching at home. We'll also cover the Republican National Convention from Sept. 1 to Sept. 4, along with more events to be announced in the weeks and months to come.
