With 360 degree coverage of Martyrs` Day rally, Trinamool sets new standards in communication
Proving that Trinamool is in no way behind any other national political party when it comes to adopting technology, Trinamool Congress took a unique step to reach out to the tech-savvy generation during the Martyrs` Day rally at Brigade parade ground. Perhaps for the first time in the country, the live video feeds of the party`s Martyrs` Day rally was aired through the social network Facebook.
People also saw instant updates with pictures from across the rally ground through the party`s Twitter handle @AITCofficial. People across the world had a `live` experience of this historic rally. The live streaming of the rally started from 11 AM and ended after Chairperson Ms. Mamata Banerjee`s speech.
Trinamool spokesperson Mr Derek O`Brien said that there was a 360 degree coverage of this historic event. This is the first time a political rally has been streamed live in West Bengal and the response was overwhelming, he said. The Trinamool Congress technical team, had its members spread all over the rally ground, taking pictures and tweeting those real-time. Trinamool YUVA National President Mr. Abhishek Banerjee was also tweeting from the stage.
