Background to being recognized by Twitter as a Twitter Official Partner
In the United States and all around the world the importance of Twitter advertising in business marketing operations is increasing. The complexity of the target audience, sophisticated advertising performance analysis, and the speed at which companies can effectively manage their operations in a plan-do-check-act fashion all have a direct influence on profit. Structuring advertising operations and the accumulation of know-how is also imperative. Being recognized by Twitter as a Twitter Official Partner has enabled Japan-based Torchlight to develop a tool which incorporates its rich and deep Twitter advertising management know-how and will allow it to respond rapidly to new developments in Twitter advertising in the future. Torchlight plans to continue to roll out proprietary services that utilize the Twitter Ads API.
