People on Twitter across the globe will come together to celebrate major events in March. 

It's important to keep an eye on events unfolding on Twitter, both near and far from where your brand calls home. For example, you might be planning for the widely-celebrated #StPatricksDay, which is expected to reach 311M Tweet impressions, but what about #InternationalWomensDay, which is expected to surpass 800M Tweet impressions globally?

With celebrations happening throughout the month there are plenty of opportunities for your brand to show your personality on Twitter with relevant content. Here's a quick list of events happening around the world this March.
