http://www.indiantelevision.com/sites/default/files/styles/smartcrop_800x800/public/images/internet-images/2014/10/04/twitter_logo.jpg?itok=bH4KqDJs

NEW DELHI: Audience measurement specialist Kantar Media, which also has a stake in TAM in India, has unveiled Britain?s official Twitter metric for measuring Twitter TV audience engagement.

Developed with Twitter as part of a global partnership announced last year, the new Kantar Twitter TV Ratings tools will be available from mid-October.

The new tool, bringing together geo-filtered UK Twitter data with the audience research expertise of Kantar Media, enables broadcasters, media agencies and advertisers to track exactly how Twitter amplifies the power of television.

Kantar Twitter TV Ratings will include new metrics that have never been available before in the UK including:

? Unique authors (people Tweeting) and their affinity to brands, channels and programmes

? Unique audience ? using data only available to Kantar Media, the firm is able to measure the number of individuals who viewed Tweets related to individual programmes/shows

? Impressions ? the total number of times that a Tweet or Retweet has been seen about a particular programme

This is in addition to existing metrics including:

? number of Tweets and Retweets about a programme before, during and after transmission;

? average Tweets per minute and the highest volume of Tweets per minute ascribed to the programme in question

According to Kantar Media global CEO and chairman Andy Brown, the launch of the first official Twitter TV metrics in the UK gives the broadcast industry official insight for social TV engagement to complement the BARB gold-standard TV measurement currency. ?Using the Kantar Twitter TV Ratings, broadcasters, planners and advertisers will be able to assess programmes and series, plan programme promotions more effectively and assist media buyers and sellers to integrate social data more comprehensively into the TV component of their media mix,? he advised.

In addition to these new metrics, Kantar Media has also developed an intuitive dashboard, Instar Social, that broadcasters, media agencies and advertisers can use to view and analyse data alongside their existing TV analysis tools. Instar Social will include a live, real-time leaderboard, providing a snapshot of the top Tweeted programmes as they happen, with the ability to drill down and view actual content of the Tweets in real-time.

Further enhancements scheduled for release include trending topics that are driven by a programme, integration of BARB gold-standard ratings data into the dashboard enabling data overlays, as well as API data feeds.
