Shailesh Rao, vice-president of international revenue, Twitter, says, "We're really excited to be working with Komli as we enter into Southeast Asia, which is one of Twitter's fastest-growing markets. We are seeing significant interest from marketers who want to use our Promoted Products to build their businesses and connect with consumers. Working with Komli gives Twitter a strong partner with a footprint throughout the region."
Akshay Garg, vice-president, international and managing director for SEA, Komli Media, says, "We are really excited to partner with Twitter. Together, we will offer marketers new and relevant opportunities to engage audiences in Southeast Asia and drive brand value. Social media growth in this region is among the highest in the world and Twitter is one of the most recognised and utilised platforms in our region."
Meanwhile, Matt Sutton, GM Engage, who runs Komli's social media business unit, says, "We're witnessing huge user growth on social media platforms in the SEA region. No surprise then that the research suggests majority of our consumers consult social media before making purchases.
