Twitter's impact on culture

Businesses come to Twitter to connect to our culture and be what's happening. And because people are in a discovery mindset when they’re on Twitter, you’re likely to make a lasting impression. 

Brand involvement in culture is especially important among consumers between the ages of 18 and 35, and those on Twitter vs. the general population are more passionate, informed, and feel more strongly about brands aligning with culture.*

Your audience is already here, and they're listening. Bring your business on Twitter and connect to our powerful and passionate audience, make an impact, and drive results.

When brands connect with what's happening on Twitter, they see lifts across the marketing funnel:

Twitter gives people a platform to discuss trending topics that they feel strongly about, which creates a very engaged audience for us to reach — whether organically or with paid ads.
