 ¿Why a #DebateEn140?

Twitter connects young people with politics. More than one million young people are called to the polls to vote for their first time in the upcoming General Elections in Spain in an exceptional political context.

According to a research commissioned by Twitter Spain the political debate has shifted to Twitter, especially among young citizens. During regional elections in Madrid, Barcelona and Andalusia, the group aged between 18 and 34 years participated to a greater extent in the political conversation on Twitter (making up 72%, 63% and 54% of the electoral conversation repectively). Young voters, aged between 18 and 34, value direct and bidirectional communication, clarity and access to updated information in real time on the proposals of the different parties. Twitter is the platform on which to communicate, talk and participate differently.

#DebateEn140 is the first digital political debate taking place in Spain and dedicated to youth issues. During the debate the participants will have a unique political opportunity to address young people and their concerns.

Joan Conca Domenech, Vice President of the European Youth Forum, said:

“Young people are shut out of decision making and not represented in traditional politics. The younger generation is, however, passionate and will fight for their future but through different means, such as social media. That is why the European Youth Forum is delighted to co-host this Twitter debate and welcomes initiatives like this which truly include young people in the political debate!”
