The weather's changing, the "Trick or Tweet" content ideas are being pitched (well, at least in our office) — October is here! As you pitch and plan your own content for the month, here are some key dates to keep in mind.
Events happening around the world this October:
#WorldAnimalDay, October 4
#YomKippur, October 8
#WorldFoodDay, October 16
#InternationalEndPovertyDay, October 17
#Diwali, October 27
#Halloween, October 31
Events happening in the US:
This month is home to two delicious food days: #NationalTacoDay, October 4 and #NationalPastaDay, October 17. Whether you're using a Twitter Poll to discover the 'best' type of pasta or sharing a team picture from a taco truck outing, these are great opportunities to have fun with your followers and showcase your brand's personality.
Events happening in Europe:
In Europe, the arts will take center stage as the #BFIFilmFestival runs in London, October 2 - 13 and #FIAC (International Contemporary Art Fair) takes place in Paris, October 17 - 20.
Want to tap into these conversations and audiences? Why not highlight some art around your office? Or 'premiere' a video of your own? As with any event on Twitter, there are more ways than one to be part of what's happening.
Events happening in the Middle East:
GITEX Technology Week (#GITEX2019) will kick off the month in Dubai, October 6 - 10. Follow the hashtag to keep up with coverage, and remember — even if you aren't attending an event in person, you can still reach its audience through event targeting. Mid-month, Tweets will be sweet for #NationalDessertDay, October 14.
Speaking of sweets, here are some creative #Halloween Tweets for a little October inspiration. Looking for more? Check out the dos and don'ts of Halloween hashtags.
