SHIFT Announces Twitter Ads API Integration

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) February 20, 2013 SHIFT, the leading collaboration and marketing platform for brands and agencies, today announced it is one of the first companies to be granted access to the new Twitter Ads API. Integrating Twitter advertising into GraphEffect, SHIFT’s social advertising application, provides advertisers and agencies the ability to build, manage, and optimize advertising campaigns on Twitter. SHIFT is the only open marketing platform with both Twitter Ads API access and the Facebook sPMD classification. SHIFT joins fellow enterprise software companies Salesforce and Adobe as one of just three platforms to share both distinctions.     The SHIFT platform enables marketers to collaborate and more efficiently manage their marketing initiatives. The platform allows brands, agencies, and developers to manage, execute, and work together throughout the life cycle of a marketing plan.

“We have hundreds of customers, including 4 of the 5 top brands, and all of them have been eagerly awaiting the release of the Twitter Ads API. Our customers know that Twitter’s advertising products are extremely effective at achieving marketing goals; this integration is going to make Twitter advertising even more efficient and easier to use,” said James Borow, CEO of SHIFT.

“Twitter’s approach to marketing requires that all of the stakeholders across paid, earned and owned media are constantly collaborating. We built SHIFT to help marketers work more effectively together, which is why we are quickly becoming the preferred platform for brands, agencies, and developers focused on marketing.” “Twitter’s Ads API allows marketers and agencies to build on the same functionality an advertiser already sees, while managing and optimizing campaigns across different channels, including Twitter,” said Adam Bain, Twitter’s president of global revenue. “SHIFT had already helped some of our largest advertisers be successful without an API, so we are excited to see what they will be able to do when they can deliver at scale.” Brands leveraging the SHIFT platform, including RadioShack, are already taking advantage of SHIFT’s Twitter Ads API integration to manage their Twitter advertising.

"Twitter is a dominant source of conversation for RadioShack between us as a brand and the customer. Not only do we use it to engage directly with our followers but it allows us to share our latest deals and offers exclusively through Twitter. The Twitter platform is a perfect conduit for our customers to speak to us and allow us to solve their needs and address issues with the appropriate contact in an efficient way," said Cosmin Ghiurau, RadioShack’s Director of Social Media.

"We’ve partnered with SHIFT since late 2012 and we’ve seen tremendous results with a 40% increase in engagement especially since the launch of the Twitter API. SHIFT allows us to bring together Social Paid efforts into one platform in order to manage and execute our social campaigns to the highest efficiency. By bringing our Social Paid efforts into a single platform we’ve been able to optimize our spend to over deliver on our KPI’s." ### About SHIFT SHIFT is the leading collaboration, planning and marketing platform for brands and agencies. Fortune 500 companies such as American Express, Marriott, Verizon, and Toyota use SHIFT to execute their marketing initiatives and measure bottom line impact. Third-party developers can also leverage SHIFT’s platform APIs to integrate their own marketing applications and allow brands and agencies to work more effectively together. SHIFT is the only open marketing platform with both Twitter Ads API access and the Facebook sPMD classification. SHIFT joins fellow enterprise software companies Salesforce and Adobe as one of just three platforms to share both distinctions. For more information, visit http://www.SHIFT.com.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
