  4. 4. KEY FINDINGS If we have to sum up the entire study, then probably the key takeaways for brand would be :- • Go the mobile way, twitter has always been the “when in rush, just tweet “ thing and nothing complements it more than mobility of mobile/smartphones. So, If launching a campaign see its feasibility with respect to phones. Mind it, half of twitter junta access twitter through phones. • DM is the least used service on twitter, like abysmally less. Something can be definitely done to improve twitter’s chat/message interface/service. • Politics, humor and sports can woo us Indians like anything. Create content around it and then jazz it up by aligning with your brand’s objective. You will find an audience for sure. • Indian youth are pretty lazy when it comes to tweeting their own content. Its mostly the viral/trending stuff which keeps spreading like a viral fever.
