About me

Hello! I'm Adam Payne and I currently head-up creative strategy and business development across Twitter UK's content creator division, Niche. My talented team and I connect brands with Niche's global network of brilliant individuals to create premium, original social media content across a multitude of platforms. Over my career to-date I've become accustomed to working at the crossroads of technology, creativity and media to make some of my best work - creating impactful stories and experiences that audiences remember, love and share. And for the best part of a decade, I've successfully delivered some wonderfully effective, award-winning marketing campaigns for a variety of brands at top agencies. I continue to craft work I'm proud of at Twitter; work that values creative integrity and strategy with originality at its heart - ultimately responding to clients' needs with real impact.
