@netmediatama TV integrated Twitter within its Sohoor programming, “Ini Sahur” to allow audiences to engage with celebrity guests and hosts during its show in real-time. The TV station also published videos to promote their various Ramadan programs, that generated nearly 4 million views during the holy month.
