Twitter launches new unlock ad feature
Twitter users can now unlock exclusive branded content with a new ‘instant unlock card’ tool, after being trialled in a seven-month beta.
By responding to a brand's call-to-action – an invitation to share personalised versions of its content to their own following – users are able to access exclusive content such as Q&As and videos.
The social media company unveiled the tool as part of its on-going ‘conversational ads’ initiative, which seeks to enable businesses to measure the success of campaigns via mentions and user interaction.
From today, global advertisers can leverage conversational ads, which Twitter claims can provide an earned media rate of 34 per cent – a figure experienced by participating brands during its beta launch stage.
'Instant unlock cards' will feature on user timelines with instructions on how to access promotional content.
