Viacom And Twitter Nail Down Social Agreement For Programming
The partnership will launch with the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, during which MTV will deliver real-time, sponsor-supported highlights of the show's most outrageous moments, buzzworthy performances, backstage access, interviews and more via Twitter. As events happen in life, we continue to see Twitter as the place people share those moments, especially when those events happen on TV," said Adam Bain, President of Global Revenue at Twitter. "Twitter Amplify will allow Viacom to connect people across screens, and tap into the social conversation on Twitter with complimentary TV video clips across all devices."
In other words, those who'd rather not be bombarded with information about TV shows they aren't watching might want to find another network for prime time.
