The #FollowFriday Series highlights today’s up-and-coming, active and all-around noteworthy Twitter accounts the AudioAcrobat staff deems worthy of following; while at the same time peering deeper into the soul(-cial media) of each account and providing a brief-yet-informative analysis.
Welcome back for the fortieth #FollowFriday tweet / WordPress mashup of 2012 here on the AudioAcrobat Weblog!
Do you ever watch live video events on the Web? This could be on your iPad, Google tablet, laptop or wi-fi connected HDTV or Blu-ray player, virtually any device that allows you to stream video over the web. If you do, chances are that you’re about to be seeing more “targeted” TV-like advertisements taking place. Who is behind this realtime targeted ad insertion, you ask?
In today’s post, we will dive deeper into the tweets of Tempe, AZ-based Internet video solutions company, Unicorn Media (@UnicornMedia) and the Twitter accounts they have chosen to follow … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) behind a company who enables other companies to maximize IP video profitability.
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said, “a company who enables other companies to maximize IP video profitability” in the same sentence.
