Live video creates a powerful real-time connection allowing viewers to get closer to a story. With connected mobile devices capable of streaming video across the globe, Stringwire is a service for news organizations to request video through Twitter, and eventually from a global network of verified contributors, or ‘stringers’.
These stringers provide live footage of breaking stories with direction from the requesting party, creating a greater level of audience engagement and wider perspective. For events and stories that have a real-time visual component, Stringwire offers dynamic content at low cost; and an agile, efficient method for news gathering and content generation.
