Nielsen Twitter TV Ratings to Expand to Australia



Nielsen’s Twitter TV solutions will be available in Australia in the second half of 2014 NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)

Nielsen, a global information and measurement company, today announced plans to bring its Twitter TV solutions to Australia in the second half of 2014. Nielsen’s Twitter TV solutions identify, capture and analyze conversation on Twitter in real time for every program aired across over 250 U.S. television channels today. They are also scheduled to expand to Italy this fall. These solutions include Nielsen Twitter TV Ratings, the first-ever measure of the total activity (Tweets, Unique Authors) and reach (Impressions, Unique Audience) of TV-related conversation on Twitter, which will be produced via the exclusive, multi-year agreement that Nielsen and Twitter announced in December 2012.


“The consumer phenomenon of social TV—people connecting through social media to enhance how they watch live TV—continues as an important global trend,” said Andrew Somosi, President, Nielsen SocialGuide. “We’re excited to expand our Twitter TV solutions to Australia where the TV industry can use these insights to better understand consumer behavior, measure engagement efforts, and refine media planning and buying efforts.”


Forty-four percent of the online population in Australia participates in social TV, according to Nielsen’s Australian Connected Consumers Report 2014, using social media to react to and share their passions about their favorite TV programs and stars with friends, family, and other fans in real time. In the U.S. today, Nielsen’s Twitter TV solutions enable more than 90 networks, agencies, and advertisers in the U.S. to measure, understand, and act on this TV-related conversation on Twitter.


Nielsen’s Twitter TV solutions support TV networks in measuring the full Twitter engagement surrounding their programs, quantifying the effectiveness of Twitter TV-related audience engagement strategies, and developing an understanding of the relationship between Twitter and tune-in. In expanding its Twitter TV solutions to this new market, Nielsen will also continue to support the needs of both global and local agencies and advertisers looking to make data-driven media planning and buying decisions that incorporate Twitter TV activity and reach.

Sydney, Australia – March 2011 -- The Nielsen Company’s (NYSE: NLSN) Nielsen Television Audience Measurement Australia has received both ISO 20252 and ISO 26362 certification.

ISO 20252 and ISO 26362 are the international standards for organisations and professionals conducting market, opinion and social research. The standards establish common Industry terms and definitions as well as service and quality requirements.

Independent auditors NCS International conducted the thorough assessment of Nielsen Television Audience Measurement Australia’s business practices in research, administration and quality control, including a review of the system procedures and documentation, along with a site-based audit of the system in operation.

The initial audit and certification against the exacting ISO standards was completed within a 16 week period – this in itself is a great accomplishment as it normally takes over 12 months to complete this certification. The accreditation will be followed by annual reviews to help verify that the operational systems and implementation quality remains high and continued development reflects the changing requirements of the marketplace.

David Ellem, Chief Executive Officer of Nielsen TV Audience Measurement Australia said: “The audit and the achievement of the standard is a reflection of the professionalism of our team. This is yet another example of our long-term commitment to continual service development and high quality research.”

“We are proud of our Australia operation’s ISO accreditation as this continues to confirm the company’s industry leadership and dedication to client satisfaction,” said Nielsen’s Global TAM Chief Executive Officer, Rolando Stalli.
