Twitter is finding its rhythm, a.k.a. business model.
What does Starcom want with Twitter? Sweet data, baby!
So my TV remote is broken- which pretty much cancels my evening plans with detectives Benson and Stabler. And Eames and Goren. And Dr Grey.

According to Iezzi the deal has three-parts: a social TV lab; an in-tweet mobile survey; and the ability to leverage Twitter’s API for planning.
The idea is to provide the firm’s clients with “unprecedented real-time data on how consumers are watching (TV), buying and the conversations that amplify brand messages,” says Starcom CEO Laura Desmond.
In other words, Twitter will now do the job that TV and Nielsen can not, by offering marketers real-time analysis of who is watching which programs, and what the temperature of the room is.
