Timesofindia.com partners with Twitter for elections

MUMBAI: Election 2014 is being hailed as one of the most important, not just in terms of election but also in terms of coverage. Saying so, the web portal of India’s biggest English newspaper The Times of India, timesofindia.com has tied up with social media platform Twitter for a unique integration named ‘Tweet to remember’.

 

Through this initiative, users will be reminded to vote on the voting day in the city. When a user tweets "@timesofindia [city name]" like "@Timesofindia Delhi", they will be guided through a process that easily enables them to add the date for their vote to their calendar on their phone or desktop.

 

A social news hub has also been created in partnership with Twitter and Frrole that will leverage trend analysis and sentiment analysis via algorithmically filtered tweets to show current trends around candidates and parties. Community feedback is used as a source of news.

 

Speaking on these partnerships Times Internet CEO Satyan Gajwani said, "The social conversation is a new component in today's news cycle. As a news outlet, Timesofindia.com is always looking for ways to bring new information and new value to its users. With social hub, we're bringing a new perspective that hasn't been readily visible before, and with ‘Tweet To Remember’, we hope to better enable the thriving democracy that powers India."

 

Twitter India market director Rishi Jaitly commenting on the initiative said, "Twitter is the world's leading mobile, real-time information network where users follow, share and experience content that is live, public and conversational. During this election season, the Twitter platform has become a vital source of daily information, conversation and communication for citizens and political leaders alike. We applaud Times Internet for innovating on our platform with "Tweet to Remember" and ensuring its audience can use Twitter to add its polling date and additional details to their calendars."
