According to the reports that we have recently obtained from our sources, it appears that Twitter has released a few new content deals for its platform tonight during the NewFronts event that was organized for advertisers of all things digital.
Counting down from the moment Twitter joined in with NewFronts, it has been up to two years and from the time Twitter joined in, efforts were targeted at improving the platform with concentration on the video strategy of the platform as a means to boost the network, be that as it may, the attention has been turned to other things which include the casting thoughts on the basic social variations of the service. This doesn’t however mean that the company has abandoned its video strategy. In fact, the company stated that it would be making a number of video deals at the NewFronts event, 13 of them to be exact, and they would all be brought out at the event. Despite the fact it is quite low compared to the deals made in the previous event last year as last year 30 deals were brought out.
Twitter has noted that it is in collaborations with a certain number of top organizations such as the NBA.
Twitter Global Vice President and Head of Content Partnerships, Kay Madati while making a statement said that, “When you collaborate with the top publishers in the world, you can develop incredibly innovative ways to elevate premium content and bring new dimensions to the conversations that are already happening on Twitter. Together with our partners, we developed this new slate of programming specifically for our audiences, and designed the content to fuel even more robust conversation on Twitter.”
