Twitter is close to securing a partnership deal with two major television networks to bring high-quality video content and advertising to the micro-blogging social platform, says Bloomberg, citing sources that are familiar with the matter.
Twitter has been holding talks with Viacom and Comcast Corp’s NBC Universal, seeking to add more entertainment and news video which would stream within tweets directly on Twitter.
Twitter’s been a hot topic the past couple of days, but not for any reasons that have put the micro-blogging platform in a favourable light. After suspending The Independent journalist Guy Adams for his part in what was very much a collective and Twitter-wide outpouring of criticism of NBC’s coverage of the London Olympic Games, Twitter has finally seen sense and restored Adams’ account.
They’ve also issued an apology. However, the reason why Adams was actually banned from the network, when other Twitter users have behaved in a similar (and often far worse) fashion and been ignored, is still far from clear. Moreover, Twitter’s relationship with its partners, and the ramifications therein for the end user, is also now being questioned.
