Twitter launches ‘We Tweet’ campaign for India

Twitter has launched its first marketing campaign for India titled ‘We Tweet’. Created by Leo Burnett, the campaign acknowledges the power of the medium to create conversations and spark movements.

However instead of focusing on the many real movements that started on Twitter like ‘#MeTooIndia’, Twitter has opted to create a fictional narrative for its first brand film.

The campaign will include online and television films, digital, out of home as well as on ground activation. It will run for six to eight weeks, with a focus on metros like Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru.

Twitter in India has 7.8 million active users according to market and consumer data firm Statista.

Twitter India managing director Manish Maheshwari said: “Core to Twitter’s live, public and conversational nature is the idea that, no matter who you are, we give people a voice to be heard.

“Over the years, Indian millennials have shown us this power through the many social movements born on the platform, with their public conversations creating big changes in colleges, communities, and even the country.

“Through #WeTweet, we want to emphasise how young people across the country can use Twitter to have their collective voice make a transformative impact on Indian society.”

Leo Burnett managing director and chief creative officer Rajdeepak Das added: “Twitter is one of the best brands in the country and ‘No tweet is too small when we tweet together’, reflects the magnitude of the brand.

“It truly reflects the power of the collective and exemplifies how individual uncertainty versus collective optimism can rewrite the course of a movement.

“Be it a fun-led or a purpose-driven conversation, Twitter has turned into a platform for new age revolution for billions of Indians.”
