The SVG Podcast: David Herman, U.S. Sports Partnerships Manager, Twitter

Social media rep outlines best practices in social video and addresses recent challenges surrounding licensed music

What makes for successful social video content? What’s the latest with how the algorithms prioritize video and motion graphic content? And what can you and your team due to better leverage your social presence? We ask those questions and more of David Herman, U.S. Sports Partnerships Manager for Twitter.

SVG’s Director of Digital Brandon Costa talks with David about everything from successful content he’s seen sports partners publish to the murky topic of accounts being suspended for the use of licensed music in their videos.

The conversation was held at our 11th-annual SVG College Summit in Atlanta on May 30, 2019.
