#MegaBites will focus on issues at the merging of business and technology and bring a unique leadership perspective on how businesses and captains of industry are gearing up for and responding to the challenges of tomorrow. The interactive show will invite a new business and technology leader every fortnight and will draw in India’s mobile audiences and engage in issues that go beyond the 24-hour news cycle. Users can join the Periscope chat show live and can also leave their questions by commenting in real-time, and participate in the conversation by tweeting with the hashtag #MegaBites.
Keya Madhvani, Media Partnerships, Twitter India, said: “The idea behind a programmed Periscope show is to foster a new format of digital storytelling via live video that is thought-provoking, conversational, substantive and distinct from mainstream content.” Entrepreneur and politician Nandan Nilekani, and Founder and CEO of FutureGroup Kishore Biyani are slated to be the next guests on #MegaBites in the coming weeks.
