MUMBAI: Twitter India has appointed Viral Jani as head of TV partnerships. He will be based at the company’s Mumbai office. As part of his new role, Jani will work closely with the complete TV ecosystem of broadcasters, production houses and audience measurement systems to make Twitter the second screen to TV in India.

His main responsibility will be to forge strategic partnerships with broadcasters to help channels amplify their message, drive more viewers, and generate more user engagement with their content on Twitter. 

Jani aims to lead this social TV movement in India by bringing the best content from TV channels to Twitter for live, public conversations, while enabling Twitter as an incredible video and visual-driven storytelling platform to drive tune-in and audience engagement for TV channels.

Moving forward, Jani is keen to position Twitter as the largest virtual couch for viewing TV content in India, and facilitate broadcasters to use the full suite of Twitter’s products such as Twitter native video, Twitter Amplify, Vine, Periscope, SnappyTV and TV analytics. 

Twitter Asia Pacific and Middle East media vice president Rishi Jaitly said, “Twitter is the ultimate companion to television and we have invested considerable time and effort in partnerships with TV broadcasters worldwide to ensure they are able to amplify the live, public conversations about their shows on our platform. In his new role, Viral will expand Twitter’s leadership and footprint in the social TV market in India, prioritising TV partners that drive audience engagement and growth.”

Jani added, “Television is one of the largest conversation generators on Twitter, and viewers are far more engaged when they are watching TV and tweeting at the same time. Twitter is also where viewers discover great TV content that is being watched now, from live events to scripted shows to reality TV. I’m thrilled to join the team at this exciting time for Twitter in India.”
