Twitter India and the digital video entity PING Network are together launching 'Megabites', a live video interview series with business and technology leaders over Twitter's live streaming app Periscope.
The first show themed 'Will India Remain A Fast Growth Economy?' will see journalist and founder of PING Network Govindraj Ethiraj in conversation with Adi Godrej, chairman, Godrej Group, in a live programmed chat show format.
Speaking on this partnership, Govindraj Ethiraj says, "#Megabites will bring India's business leaders on the same platform as young India and have them interact on issues that matter the most to the economy, to the country, and to our future."
This year, Twitter India, through various programmed Periscope shows, has focussed on programming live video content on the platform with industry stalwarts in the areas of sports, food, safety, and entrepreneurship.
Keya Madhvani, head, media partnerships, Twitter India, says, "Through #MegaBites, our newest Periscope series, viewers can keep a finger on the pulse of conversations at the intersection of business and technology. The idea behind a programmed Periscope show is to foster a new format of digital storytelling via live video that is thought-provoking, conversational, substantive, and distinct from mainstream content."
Entrepreneur and politician Nandan Nilekani, and founder and CEO of Future Group Kishore Biyani are slated to be the next guests on the series.
