Social Election Night for msnbc.com

msnbc.com plans to embed itself into social-media users’ tracking of Tuesday’s midterm election results, announcing that its live stream of NBC News’ coverage from 9 p.m.-3 a.m. (ET) can be embedded and shared on both Facebook and Twitter, the latter marking the first time live election coverage will ever be embedded on the microblogging service.

The embedded video player can be viewed and shared with friends and followers. A Decision 2010 widget is also available, and the cable network said Twitter users can follow @NBCNews and the hashtag #Decision2010.

And viewers can join the election conversation, share pictures and video, monitor candidates’ Tweets, live chat, and be included in hashtag art via the Decision 2010 Web page or Facebook.
