YouTube today shared some numbers for the official livestreams of the Republican National Convention (RNC) and Democratic National Convention (DNC), the political events where each U.S. political party chose their respective candidates for president: Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. The two events were viewed live on YouTube over 9 million times, with viewers tuning in for 25 minutes on average (impressive, given our shortening attention spans). – Emil Protalinski, VentureBeat
