Starting today, we are offering brands an immersive and personalized way to integrate their campaigns into video via Custom Hearts on live and on-demand Periscope video. As video continues to play a prominent role in brands’ campaigns and content strategy, activating Custom Hearts is a new way for brands to visually and natively amplify their campaigns within live video.
As video viewership on Twitter continues to grow, video has become an increasingly important channel for publishers, creators and brands to reach their audiences. Today, we’re introducing a new opportunity for publishers and creators to monetize their content, and for brands to advertise against it, with pre-roll ads on Periscope video within Twitter.
We are constantly monitoring our campaign reporting to ensure 100% accuracy. Through that process, we discovered a technical error due to a Twitter product update to Android clients that affected some video ad campaigns from November 7 to December 12. The issue has been fixed but we wanted to share more details on what the impact was to our advertising partners.
Once we discovered the issue, we resolved it and communicated the impact to affected partners. Given this was a technical error, not a policy or definition issue, we are confident it has been resolved.
