Earlier this year, Twitter launched TV ad targeting, a way for brands to reach TV viewers on Twitter who may have been exposed to their ads during a television show. Last week, Twitter expanded its TV ad collection to include conversation targeting, in order to help advertisers reach TV viewers engaged in conversation about a particular show.
The way TV conversation targeting works is simple: through our conversation mapping technology, networks and brands can promote Tweets to users who engage with specific shows, whether or not a brand is running a spot in the program. Now advertisers can easily reach Twitter users exposed to integrations, sponsorships, and other innovative TV tie-ins for an additional touch point or message expansion.
While this feature is too new to know its impact, previous research commissioned by Twitter with Nielsen and MarketShare showed Twitter ads that targeted viewers who may have been exposed to the brand’s TV ads as well showed significant ROI.
Twitter TV conversation targeting works through their conversation mapping technology, which was showcased at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity earlier this year (see demonstration):
One stat from Twitter’s feature announcement showed the cost per incremental acquisition from TV advertising was 36 percent less when Promoted Tweets ran alongside TV ads, versus TV ads alone.
In addition, when TV ads were paired with Twitter paid media, “TV ads drive 8-16 percent more sales directionally,” Twitter reported.
Conversation targeting is now available in the U.S. and the U.K., with Brazil, Canada, France, and Spain to follow in the coming weeks.

What would we do without social media?
Facebook isn't just the world's largest social network. In the past two years, it has also become one of the world's most popular online destinations for consuming video content.
If your responsibilities have anything to do with marketing, advertising, PR or social media, you can’t afford to be camera-shy in this day and age.
It has been a very busy year for Instagram.
