Happy New Year!

Indians from all corners of the country followed and tweeted the end of 2013 and the start of 2014 with messages, pictures and videos.

Popular hashtags included #Welcome2014, #HappyNewYear, and #MeIn2014. Check out this tweet with the sun rising on a brand new year:

Our live, real-time, public platform also played host to a range of Happy New Year tweets from public figures and people across the country. Below is a custom timeline of some of our favorites.

Many organizations also used the New Year to engage our users in creative ways; Red Chillies Entertainment, for one, unveiled a special initiative wherein anyone tweeting at their upcoming film “Happy New Year” @HNY and a member of the cast with #HNYPoster, will soon receive back a personalized film poster.

We look forward to another year of helping you discover content, connect with others, and express your interests. From our team to all of you, we wish you a Happy 2014!
