Time Magazine, Foursquare Partner For Political Conventions

Time Magazine is offering some special content to Foursquare users who check in at the Republican National Convention in Tampa in August or the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte.
Users who unlock the Time-Foursquare badge get “access to a curated list of must-attend venues and events,” plus convention tips from Time reporters — like historical facts from past conventions and 2012 campaign tips about the nominees and delegates.
Time already uses Foursquare to tie the covers of back issues to historical sites around the country. Other magazine brands have also experimented with Foursquare — Lucky offers mobile shopping deals, for instance — and magazines like New York and Time (NYSE: TWX) Out allow users to save web content to their Foursquare accounts.
