Target Television Watchers Around The World As Twitter Expands TV Conversation Targeting

Today, Twitter is rolling out the ability to target users who are actively talking about a TV program to a handful of locations across the world. This targeting type allows advertisers to market to those who are watching a specific program whether it’s “Tu Cara Me Suena” in Spain or “Big Brother Brasil” in Brazil.

Target-Worldwide

Initially offered only in the US and UK, the list of new locations include Brazil, Canada, France and Spain, with beta availability in Argentina, Australia, Austria, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan and Mexico. To highlight the overall capability and activity around a show, Twitter released this following graphic on the Big Brother Brasil finale:
