Twitter’s deal with NBCUniversal will see E!’s signature ‘Live from the Red Carpet’ events as well as popular TV programming from @eonlineau now available on the platform.

Twitter has also teamed up with VICE to deliver premium content to young audiences consuming news, culture and talking about what’s happening in their lives, at scale.

Kay Madati, global vice president of content partnerships at Twitter, said: “Content is happening now at Twitter, and we have proven through the efficacy of the partnerships we have crafted, that content programming and distribution on Twitter is an essential part of any media company’s audience engagement and content monetisation strategies.

“Asia Pacific is accelerating growth for Twitter. Our unique and strategic value proposition that positions Twitter as a complement, not competitor to traditional media companies, has delivered great success, and we seek to drive forward with more live stream and premium video content partnerships in the region.”

Twitter’s APAC vice president, Maya Hari, said: “Video continues to be an important way to stay informed and engaged on Twitter, especially for the younger Millennial audience in Asia Pacific.

“Building on the success of our premium video content launch at All That Matters last year, we are proud to expand our live stream and video highlights programming that is brand-safe and will appeal to the audience and advertisers in APAC.

“The move strengthens Twitter’s presence and partnerships in the region, sharing with the world what’s happening right now in Asia Pacific and for global audiences to talk about it.”
