Governor Palin is speaking tonight at the RightOnline Conference in Las Vegas.
Tony Lee at Big Government was able to get exclusive information regarding her speech, which is scheduled for 10:00 p.m. Eastern and will be livestreamed here:

On Friday night, at the Right Online conference in Las Vegas, Nevada – a two-day gathering of online conservatives put on by the dynamic conservative group Americans For Prosperity – Palin will give a keynote address in addition to honoring Breitbart and his legacy.
A source close to Palin with knowledge of her speech told Breitbart News that Palin “will be speaking about the importance of new media” because “she sees conservative bloggers and social media activists as the vanguard of the grassroots conservative movement."
After the 2008 elections, Palin was repeatedly mocked by liberals, those in the legacy mainstream media, and even Republicans for using Facebook and Twitter to go over the heads of these establishment institutions. Now, nearly everyone who initially mocked her Facebook posts and tweets regularly use Facebook and Twitter to get their message out.
Twitter and Facebook have been integrated and ingrained in nearly everything that occurs in the political universe. In essence, they could not beat Palin, so they essentially joined her.
