Twitter is pretty important to Southeast Asia. With Indonesia the fifth biggest Twitter country in the world and other countries in the region quickly picking it up, it’s only a matter of time before the microblogging service reigns supreme across much of the region.
Twitter has become increasingly relevant in modern public society, from major sports events to music sensations to political movements. And they know it.
With Asia’s growth, Twitter is taking this more seriously. That’s why Twitter just hired Aliza Knox, who was the most senior Googler in Asia-Pacific. She’s now the managing director for Online Sales APAC at Twitter. Twitter’s presence in the region is seriously stepping up, and we’re happy to get a peek into this.
Aliza will be at our Startup Asia Singapore event on April 4th at 9:45am, and I’ll be interviewing her about Twitter’s plans for the region and also how startups can better use Twitter for their business. It’ll be enlightening to see what’s next for Twitter and social media in Southeast Asia. We will see you on April 4 and 5 at Startup Asia Singapore.
