Katie Jacobs Stanton Replaces Chloe Sladden as Twitter’s VP of Global Media

8c1622151fdcb80d5ce98e7a3c3d405dThere is perhaps no position more important in the social TV space than Twitter’s head of media. Three weeks after Chloe Sladden announced her departure, ‘Variety’ has reported that Katie Jacobs Stanton, Twitter’s vice president of international market development, will step into the role.

Here are the details from Variety:

Stanton steps into a highly visible role as far as the media business is concerned, becoming the lead liaison to a range of industries including TV, sports and music. Under Sladden’s oversight, Twittermade its first crucial steps toward striking alliances with various networks, studios and other media businesses that has not only helped grow the company’s global user base but led to ad products that have helped the company with its monetization efforts.

Previously at Yahoo and Google, Stanton also worked for the White House under President Obama and the State Department under Hillary Clinton. She has been at Twitter for four years, having moved from its San Francisco headquarters last year to spearhead expansion efforts for the company overseas. The new post will mean she is returning from Paris to San Francisco.

Stanton doesn’t have the kind of media-heavy resume you might expect from someone in her new role. Prior to a stint at Yahoo Finance that ended in 2002, she did a six-year stint at Google that included roles at Google Finance and OpenSocial. She joined the Obama Administration in 2009 as director of citizen participation, which made the White House a more Web-friendly destination for voters. She segued a year later to the State Department as a special officer in its office of innovation, leaving for Twitter in 2010. Read more

ABC Family VP: Twitter is ‘the New Water Cooler’

Pretty Little LiarsABC Family’s “Pretty Little Liars” often ranks atop the Nielsen’s Twitter ratings, and apparently, the network is leaning more and more on the popular second screen platform to boost its hit shows.

The Associated Press reports on the network’s top brass’ view on Twitter, hashtags, and social TV.

During fresh episodes of “Pretty Little Liars,” the marketing and publicity teams at ABC Family huddle in a conference room to tweet live with fans. So do cast members and the show’s producers from where and when they can – and the dialogue often pays off. “From a very top level perspective we talk about Twitter being the new water cooler,” said Danielle Mullin, the network’s vice president of marketing.

The report also talks about the value of hashtags.

Screen Shot 2014-06-14 at 1.06.17 PMLost Remote first wrote about Twitter’s Chloe Sladden back in 2010. Since then, Sladden rose to the VP of Media as the company went public and along the way built out an impressive TV team with Fred Graver at its head. Her leadership helped put TV and Twitter in what continues to be a (mostly) loving relationship. Sladden recently announced she’ll be leaving the company and hasn’t announced her next move yet but it’s definitely worth paying attention to who steps in to take her place. Here are the full details from the SF Gate’s Tech Chronicles. Read more

Univision’s David Beck Takes Part in Social TV Twitter Chat with MIT Alumni Association

PrintLast Thursday – the first day of the World Cup – Univision’s David Beck, a true social TV expert, took part in a Twitter chat with the MIT Alumni Association. Beck graduated from the school’s MBA program in 2006.
