It was a smooth partnership. We are very pleased to see that the demographic breakdown of the audience allowed us to expose the NewsHour’s quality journalism to Twitter’s broad user base.

We are looking for ways to work with Twitter again to explore how we can further create insightful livestreaming news experiences that people want to see and share.
