The New York Times continues its exploration of messaging formats with this in-app conversational bot for the midterm elections. Alexander Burns, a political correspondent will tell stories from the campaign trail, and ask feedback from readers.
That means if you sign up, you’ll receive push updates and follow the conversation inside the app. You might also be asked for different kinds of input, like a poll for where the reporter should go next or the issues you care most about. A great way to complement the good old campaign reporting with a more casual and interactive tone.
