Twitter will provide real-time holiday insights, powered by Brandwatch, throughout November and December 2017.
#HolidayIsHappening on Twitter. From discovering new gift ideas and recipes, to Tweeting about what ugly sweater to wear, to sharing what shows to binge watch while home for the holidays, the conversation is taking place on Twitter. This year, Twitter is partnering with Brandwatch and Cheddar to keep holiday enthusiasts up to date on what’s hot and what’s not this season.
We will be sharing these insights as quickly as the conversations are unfolding on Twitter, uncovering trends found on holiday shopping behavior and offering brands ways to hone in on these behaviors for a successful holiday season on Twitter. These insights will include the hottest gifts, the most talked about brands of the week, top Tweeted emojis, and most mentioned hashtags, spanning across various categories, such as gadgets and toys, auto, fashion, entertainment, and food and drink.
We’ll also be listening to what’s happening in real-time to unveil what people are talking about during the biggest moments of the holiday season, such as what recipes to make for Thanksgiving or what brands people are talking about ahead of Cyber Monday. Through Brandwatch, we’ll be sorting through holiday-related Tweets and focus on the ones that show purchase intent. That way, we’re able to see what people want to actually buy this season and give brands and marketers actionable insights to optimize their campaigns in real time.
