"We're excited to partner with FORA.tv to present our debates live on Twitter, viewable in real time," said Clea Chang, Director of Marketing and Digital Strategy for Intelligence Squared U.S. "With Twitter's powerful network effects, we can expand our audience and further raise the level of public discourse online.”
“We are proud to join a select group of approved providers that have the capability to present live and on-demand video streams within the Twitter platform,” said Blaise Zerega, President and CEO of FORA.tv. “This capability enables our partners to broaden the reach of their conferences and event video with a click of the “Tweet” button. Now our partners can better capitalize on the existing Twitter chatter around their events and conferences by bringing the video directly to their Twitter followers.
