Nielsen partners with Twitter to track ratings
Even though the traditional concept of television seasons seems to be losing relevancy for viewers, remains very important for advertising, international sales and other aspects of the business.
The new Nielsen Twitter TV Rating is scheduled to be commercially available in time for the fall 2013 television season. It will track both those participating as well as those who were exposed to the social conversation, with the goal of measuring both this audience’s size and its effect and reporting it in a standardized way.
The exclusive multi-year agreement is a complement to Nielsen’s existing TV ratings and Nielsen/McKinsey & Co.’s NM Incite’s SocialGuide audience engagement analytics platform.
