Orange confirmed to speak at Social Media World Forum after announcing co-operation with Twitter

We are very excited to have Mark Watts-Jones, Head of Development and Innovation at Orange UK confirmed to speak at the SMWF 2010.

Orange recently announced that Twitter users in Europe will soon be able to tweet to each other via their TV sets while watching entertainment and sports shows, following a     deal between Orange and the micro-blogging service. Under the deal, Orange is aiming to integrate Twitter into football coverage, news, entertainment shows and films.

Mark commented “ We’ve seen over the last year how Twitter is transforming the dynamics of real-time search and breaking news.  So were delighted to extend the value of the service by bringing it to mobile, enabling our customers to view and update their Twitter streams and giving them the unique ability to upload photos directly via MMS.

Orange, which is owned by the telecommunications giant France Telecom, runs TV services in France, Spain and Poland and mobile and internet services internationally, including in the UK.
