Disney is making exclusive Twitter content

Twitter has taken wraps off plans for more than 30 new collaborations in the areas of entertainment, news, sports and gaming in 2018, part of its slew of announcements at its annual NewFronts presentation this afternoon in NY.

Under the agreement, Disney's different divisions will be able to "create unique experiences on Twitter" that include "attractive live content throughout our portfolio", said Justin Connolly, vice president of sales and marketing for Disney and ESPN.

Twitter will work with Hearst Magazines Digital Media to stream two new shows: Delish will create "Delish's Food Day" to spotlight US food holidays and pop culture food trends, while Seventeen will create "IRL" for celebrity gossip, fashion, and more. In addition to the recently announced weekly live stream MLB game and highlights package, MLB will live stream a brand-new show on Twitter around the MLB All-Star Game and Postseason.

Disney will collaborate with Twitter in the creation of content, especially live broadcasts of its sports television subsidiary, ESPN. "The Twitter sports community is the digital roar of the crowd", said its global VP of revenue and content partnerships, Matthew Derella.

While Twitter wants to learn a video lesson from Snapchat, walled garden Snapchat is learning to play nice with Twitter and Facebook.
