"Twitter marketing has rapidly evolved since brands first took notice at SXSWi 2007," said Adam Schoenfeld, CEO of Simply Measured. "Twitter has become an integral part of the modern marketing organization, giving real insight that can impact meaningful business decisions. As the ad offering and organic engagement potential of Twitter continue to grow, it's becoming more important than ever for marketers to measure and analyze the tactics they use, audience they reach, and effect of their efforts."
Key findings of the Twitter study include:
- 92 percent of top brands Tweet at least once daily.
- Study shows Twitter's maturity as a marketing and engagement platform. Top brands average 43,100 engagements per month.
- Over 36 percent of all brand Tweets contain links. As content marketing becomes increasingly important, and top brands are behaving more and more like media companies, Twitter is proving to be a critical distribution and engagement channel.
