TOKYO -- Twitter aims to learn from its experience in Japan to take its social media service deeper into Asia, with high hopes for big South and Southeast Asian markets in particular, its chief financial officer said in an interview.

"Asia is a very important opportunity for Twitter," Ned Segal said on the sidelines of the Nikkei Global Management Forum in Tokyo. The U.S. company sees "very significant opportunities in countries like India and Indonesia and the Philippines" because there are "so many people."
