Digitally omnivorous Latinx audiences, tweeting before they can talk, connected to the teeth, sharing homespun content-as-conversation. They’re the marketer’s brass ring, the political operative’s target, the demographer’s dream. For Beatriz Acevedo, they’re the pulsating core of the Mitu audience. For America, they’re a living, breathing look at our future. Mitu’s breakneck push into original content is setting the pace for Hollywood studios and Silicon Valley start-ups. Who’s watching Mitu? Pretty soon: everyone else, too.
