Conversations that Shape Culture

From #LetsGetThisBread to the ‘Don't Say It’ meme and Elon Musk's tweets, nobody knows what fuels today’s cultural conversation better than Twitter. Whatever you heard, you heard it first in a tweet – and then added your two cents. But what does it take for brands to break through the noise? How do you become a global talking point – for the right reasons? And what are the audience behaviors that drive culture-defining moments? Join Twitter to find out how you can supercharge your next campaign launch.

Questions this session will answer:

  • What are some actionable steps you can take to drive talk-ability?
  • How can you capitalize on the audience trends driving conversation and culture?
  • When should you consider launching a new cultural movement vs. connecting with an existing conversation?
