Watch LIVE

Watch tonight's debate as you never have before through live GIF

"...instant animations of the best debate moments, from zingers to gaffes to awkward silences."

While many will be tuning into the presidential debates tonight via television or live stream, a different medium will be showcasing the presidential candidates actions in a way you might not have expected to see them before.

The site Tumblr will be live "GIFfing" the debate. A GIF is essentially an image that appears as a short animation (see below).

The Tumblr staff writes they'll have a team of GIF artists "cranking out instant animations of the best debate moments, from zingers to gaffes to awkward silences."

Everything will take place on "Gifwich," a live GIFfing blog, but Tumblr issues the warning that they could be updating with animations every minute. So, if you want a more controlled GIF viewing experience of the debate, Tumblr suggests watching its own official election blog for some curated selections.

GIF coverage will begin at 9 p.m. EST along with the debates.
