Twitter held pitches for its first European advertising and media agencies this week, with the help of three executives from the US. 101, Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO and Bartle Bogle Hegarty are competing for the creative account, while Dentsu Aegis Network, MediaCom and PHD are contesting media. It is thought a decision could be announced before June.

AO.com: five agencies are involved

UK Trade & Investment has run a review to find a new creative agency. A result is imminent.

Motorola’s global activation pitch is nearing the final stages. And it looks like good news for WPP, as it is understood that Motorola will choose between the WPP networks Grey and Ogilvy & Mather. The winning agency will work with Droga5 to activate its "big idea" in markets including Brazil, China, Europe and India.
