Still need proof that this is the most fascinating political year ever? C-Span just went viral. After 26-hours, House Democrats ended their gun control sit-in. The sit-in made for an exciting night for Congress and a big night for Twitter’s Periscope which was used to broadcast live shots that were picked up by cable outlets. From the NYT: For one day and night, the hottest drama on cable was on C-Span. (Update: C-Span just raised a 500K round on a $10 billion pre-money valuation.)

+ And from WaPo: Five things House Democrats’ sit-in on guns will change. And one it won’t. (Hint: guns)
