Tonight, starting at 9:00 p.m., Barack Obama and Mitt Romney will face off for the first time. Reason's crack team of Twitterers will be there to help you though the ordeal, with our usual live Twitter feed, right here at Hit&Run.

And stay with us afterward: Kicking off about 15 minutes after the debate ends (about 10:45 p.m.), Reason will be hosting a Google+ Hangout where we'll be joined by folks from Roll CallChristian Science Monitor, Political Wire, and Think Progress to talk about the carnage we have just witnessed.

You can check out the Hangout right here at Reason.com or over at our official Google+ page. We'll also be streaming at our YouTube page.

And hey! If you want to know about these kinds of special events, why not subscribe to our YouTube channel or follow us at Google+? It's what all the cool kids are doing.
