SecondSync explain on their website : “We are very proud of the business we have built up over the last three years. Through our social analytics products, we’ve enabled clients in the broadcast and advertising industries to realise the value of conversations on Twitter about television. Twitter is the only place that hosts a real-time, public conversation about TV at scale.
By joining Twitter, we will be able to help take that experience, in concert with the rest of the TV ecosystem, to the next level —particularly in markets outside the United States. Our current UK product will continue to be available for an interim period.”
