Twitter and WPP , the world's largest advertising agency, have combined forces to better focus advertising by using consumer data.

The strategic partnership, announced on Thursday, means that WPP and its agencies such as GroupM and Kantar, will use Twitter's data trove to gain insight into customer behavior to pinpoint where to spend its ad dollars.

In April, Twitter struck up a partnership worth hundreds of millions of dollars with the Publicis Groupe's

Starcom MediaVest Group.
