How Wayin Empowered Audiences’ Voices for India Election Coverage

TV-monitor_timesnowgraphThe results of India’s 16th general elections were announced last week, and the BJP’s Narendra Modi will be India’s 14th prime minister.

Times Now – India’s most watched channel – provided voters with non-stop election coverage and the network used Wayin Broadcast to integrate viewer tweets directly into telecasts. Wayin Broadcast gives TV producers real-time social information about how audiences are engaging with shows, and allows them to display the conversation on-air.
