Published on

In our analysis of over 200,000 Tweets mentioning top retailers, we found that brands can expect up to 5X normal Twitter volume in the coming weeks. The biggest surge occurred in the days following Cyber Monday.

Even if you have your holiday social strategy already in place, we will present actionable insights for how to take your social engagement to the next level and to protect yourself from the increased likelihood of social media crises.
