"An increasing number of people are consuming Twitter 'Moments' than ever before, including those created by top publishers in sports, entertainment and news," Taranjeet Singh, Country Director, Twitter India, said in a statement.

To begin with, Maruti Suzuki and NDTV Car and Bike have come on board as partners in the Asia Pacific.

'Sponsored Moments' give advertisers the ability to add a branded cover image to the 'Moments' in question as well as insert their own brand's tweets into the round-up.

For publishers, 'Moments' is an end-to-end solution for publishing and monetising all forms of content on the micro-blogging platform, including Tweets, photos, videos, and GIFs.

It also allows publishers produce and tell stories about events easily.

'Sponsored Moments' are an extension of 'In-Stream Video Sponsorships' which are customised programmes where brands and publishers are paired up on a one-on-one basis.
