“The stage is set for innovation in news and Bloomberg is taking on that challenge. Twitter’s speed and vast global network of content and commentary combined with the high quality, editorial rigor of Bloomberg is a unique and powerful combination. Our collaboration will bring these forces together through live video and the related conversation,” said Anthony Noto, COO of Twitter.

“Adding these 12 new live deals tonight is a testament to the success of our only-on-Twitter experience, combining high quality streaming video with our only-on-Twitter conversation,” Noto added.
