The Nasscom India Leadership Summit, impossibly called ‘NILF’, is the Indian IT industry’s annual jamboree-cum-schmoozefest. It’s predictable, overdrawn (over three days, this year from 15-17 February) and fashionably behind the curve when it comes to any major technology trend.
But for Twitter India, NILF held promise. Because Nasscom had approached it to set up one of its “Blue Rooms” at the summit. Blue Rooms are Twitter-designed and managed one-room studios where celebrities are invited to record live videos and chat live with Twitter users. Launched originally in Australia in March 2015, India got one in May 2016.
