Reliance Mobile, the Global Partner of ICC World Twenty20 2014, teamed up with its digital agency, World Wide Open to create the longest-running Twitter contest, aptly titled, Twee20. The objective was to recreate the fast-paced experience of Twenty20 online for the brand’s social media fans. In order to deliver more value for the fans, the brand also announced that the top 10 winners would be rewarded with autographed cricket merchandise.
