The Challenge

Twitter's largest advertisers sought to create exclusive events where attendees could interact in a Twitter-like environment without broadcasting tweets on the open platform. This posed several challenges:

  1. Exclusive Event Experience: Twitter needed a solution that could offer the same interactive and conversational experience as Twitter, but in a closed and exclusive setting for large events.
  2. Customizable and Scalable Solution: The application had to be highly customizable to fit various branded events' themes and requirements. Additionally, Twitter envisioned deploying the solution globally without the need for on-site technical assistance at each event.
