We have partnered with Twitter for the third year in a row to bring forth key marketing trends and campaigns that are creating a huge buzz whilst guiding brands to stay on top of their games. The Twitter trends report especially looks to aid brands to strategise their business and marketing plans as per the most popular trends, which also is a key pillar for Storyboard18 as a show for brands to earmark trends, insights, analysis and stay ahead of the curve.”
Preetha Athrey, Director, Global Business Marketing, Twitter APAC, said, “Twitter is the world’s largest forum of public human thought. Our audience is often first to talk about things, so when topics or trends start to pop-up on Twitter, they provide a window into culture. The latest edition of The Conversation series delves into developments influencing the India market that act as the barometer for brands to survive in the ever-changing environment. As one of the frontier news networks, CNBC-TV18 was the perfect partner, and Storyboard18 the perfect show, to reach out to the business community, and talk about how marketing is evolving.”
