Twitter has announced its plans to shut down its SnappyTV service.
The social media platform has notified partners that the live clipping and publishing tool will be fully deprecated by December 31st, 2019.
In its place, Twitter will add LiveCut to Twitter Media Studio. LiveCut is a Twitter only clipping tool and will not enable content sharing to other social media platforms, websites or mobile apps.
Social platforms have long since been the go-to destination for audiences to view real-time highlights, breaking news stories and key moments from live events and TV. Audiences are now multi-platform, multi-device and expect content tailored for each of those platforms. Different content works for different platforms. Publishers have adopted video publishing strategies to meet the specific nuances of each service; having a Twitter only video strategy is not enough for everyone.
The proliferation of content across social and digital channels has intensified the competition for consumer attention. The choice for what, where and how we watch is changing fast, but if rights holders cannot be the first to deliver content to their audiences, in a format they prefer and on a platform they want – If content is King, then distribution is now Queen.
