Twitter India and PING Networks, a video creation and distribution firm, have announced launching a live-video interview series with business and technology leaders titled #MegaBites over micro blogging site’s live streaming app Periscope.
Govindraj Ethiraj, veteran journalist and founder of PING Network, will roll out the first episode on Wednesday. The first show themed 'Will India Remain A Fast Growth Economy' will see Ethiraj in conversation with Adi Godrej, Chairman, Godrej Group, in a live programmed chat show.
The first episode will be streamed live on Periscope HD via BOOM.
#MegaBites will focus on issues at the confluence of business and technology and bring a unique leadership perspective on how businesses and captains of industry are gearing up for and responding to the challenges of tomorrow.
This interactive show will invite a new business and technology leader every fortnight and will draw in India's mobile audiences and engage in issues that go beyond the 24-hour news cycle.
Social media users can join the Periscope show live, leave their questions by commenting in real time, and participate in the conversation by tweeting with the hashtag #MegaBites.
Keya Madhvani, Media Partnerships, Twitter India, said: "The idea behind a programmed Periscope show is to foster a new format of digital storytelling via live video that is thought-provoking, conversational, substantive and distinct from mainstream content."
Entrepreneur and politician Nandan Nilekani, and Founder and CEO of FutureGroup Kishore Biyani are slated to be the next guests on #MegaBites in the coming weeks.
