In the same week when Instagram and Facebook had to turn to rival Twitter for help during its unexpected blackout, Campaign US chatted with Sarah Personette, VP of Twitter global client solutions, about the future of social media.
Personette, who leads Twitter’s partnerships with major marketers and agencies around the world, also previously worked at Refinery29, Facebook, Universal McCann and Starcom Mediavest Group.
