“Twitter is current and live - it's just like serving a dish at the restaurant - you get instant feedback. I can bounce off ideas for seasonal menus at The Bombay Canteen with our followers and I can also reach out to them asking about new ingredients I come across. I often look to Twitter for travel tips, and hyperlocal recommendations from foodies in the city I am visiting. Twitter helps build connections, inspires my work, and I learn something new everyday through my conversations,” says chef Thomas Zacharias (@ChefTZac) at The Bombay Canteen.

“#EveryCharacterMatters will put a spotlight on the new young, delightful, hyperlocal Twitter. It will allow people to enjoy their interests such as food and music in a new dimension, and in a more inclusive and collaborative manner. The content across categories on Twitter is authentic and relatable, and that helps us redefine digital lifestyles on the world’s largest live communications platform today,” says Twitter India Lifestyle and Culture Partnerships Keya Madhvani.

#EveryCharacterMatters will spotlight young Indian talent across genres, and all week these users will tell their stories in new, creative, multimedia content forms using Tweets, photos, videos, Vines, and Periscopes. They will collaborate with Twitter users for a richer experience by asking people to Tweet their ideas, lyrics, sound clips, and will involve them in the creator’s journey. You can journey with a musician in the making of a new track, or you can accompany a blogger as he walks down the streets of Bandra as he enjoys the local street food. Twitter brings you closer to all your favourite things, and you can enjoy them in ways you had never imagined - through candid conversations, live video broadcasts, and short-form videos.
