Tiesto Live Stream on Twitter

This is something I am really excited of with some unusual advances in twitter where HP and Intel will be teaming up with twitter for hosting the first-ever live stream of a concert on Twitter next week at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show. The headliner: who else electronic music master Tiësto.

The concert will kick off the launch of a new 10-episode series on YouTube called “In the Booth” — a behind-the-scenes look at Tiësto’s life and his impact on the electronic dance movement. The private event at the nightclub XS at Encore in Las Vegas will stream live from HP and Intel’s newly enhanced Twitter brand pages.

Tiësto will play a 90-minute set on Wednesday, January 11 starting at 10:00 p.m. PT. It will then play on a loop on HP and Intel’s Twitter page for the following 48 hours.

I remember Twitter had even offered streaming on the site, but this is the first-time ever that the site will feature a live concert as I have heard, and with this I expect new brand pages for companies more widely available by the end of the first quarter of 2012, go Twitter I think the Sheik investment is doing well for them 🙂

Twitter users will also be able to interact with others on the site while watching the live stream next week. HP and Intel execs will also be live tweeting from the show via the hash tag #TiestoLive.

This will change the way fans interact with brands on the site. Companies can tell fans to check out their pages and features by saying @HP or @Intel, instead of giving a long URL that doesn’t roll off the tongue, yipeeee In addition, this is a concept that isn’t even available on Facebook, since it’s a closed community. Here, anyone can watch the live stream and chat with anyone else with the same interests. I expect to see some powerful things come out of brand pages in the future

The Web series – produced by Believe Entertainment Group – will launch Tuesday, Jan. 17 on YouTube and each video will be between five and seven minutes long. I will tuning into this for sure.. Check me out on twitter in this LINK

How is the new year treating you guys, hope its rocking. C U next week..
