As a company, Twitter is making video experiences even better for consumers, publishers, and advertisers by investing in the video viewing experience through updates to the platform, content development, and video ad solutions. Twitter offers transparency and flexibility to both advertisers and premium content partners to choose their collaborations with the newly launched in-stream video ads offering. Twitter offers 15 content categories that advertisers can choose from, thereby making the solution scalable across premium content consumed on the platform.

To make it even more effective for advertisers to align with this great video content at scale, Twitter has expanded the opportunity for people to discover videos by targeting audiences most likely to be interested in this content. This allows brands to reach an incremental audience, especially amongst younger audiences and raise awareness of the brand or product message.
