    only after HeForShe Prior to the day of the anniversary between September 15th and 19th there were 5709 total original tweets not counting retweets As usual the catalyzer of the activity was HeForShe For example on the 16th there were 681 total tweets and the top one yet another retweet of by caitlinwithac of one of the official campaign s account messages https twitter com HeforShe status 643802338809933824 On the day of the speech s anniversary itself last 9 20 there were 1532 total tweets a good recovery from the decline in the day prior Have you guessed who the top tweet was from It s not Emma not HeForShe but EmWatsonUpdates a fan made account for updates and events in Emma Watson s career We almost wish we were as popular as miss Watson so someone else can do the tweeting for us when we forget to do it on an important day HappyAnniversaryHeForShe 1 year since EmWatson s speech for gender equality HeforShe HeForShe https t co Moz7FSEfId Emma Watson Updates EmWatsonUpdates September 20 2015 Now after the day has gone and the dust has settled who else is tweeting about HeForShe Let s look at the data for 9 21 We found that there were 1136 total tweets the top one again by HeForShe in an attempt to piggyback on Dubsmash and asking users to create videos of their favorite parts of Emma Watson s speech Dubsmash your fav moments from EmWatson s speech in honor of our 1st anniversary today Tag them with HeForShe pic twitter com PqyFSxxLUK HeForShe HeforShe September 20 2015 As expected there was a gradual drop in tweets in the days that followed with both days owing their top tweets to UN Women https twitter com UN Women status 646040013390659584 https twitter com UN Women status 646350552444628992 And this is exactly the point we wanted to get to Having a big testimonial like Emma Watson and her friends is great but the real long term impact wouldn t have been possible without the constant effort of the HeForShe social media team mainly channelled through their dedicated homonymous HeForShe account These are their stats for 9 15 to 9 23 As you can see it s them who are doing the hard work and promoting the movement all year round Even for the anniversary it was HeForShe that originally sent out the tweet that emwatson retweeted last week and that s why our Hashtags Lab shows that account as the top Influencer for the hashtag even if they only have 258 454 followers much less than the celebrities who are constantly helping them Campaign Success One Year Later In the end in the two weeks we analyzed between September 10 and 24 2015 there were a total of 12 051 tweets by 8 761 unique users That s about 1 of the total garnered tweets from last year but it means that in just two weeks the campaign still generated 59 million potential unique impressions And just as importantly there are lots of men using the hashtag as we have observed above which is the main purpose of the movement to get men involved Conclusion One obvious conclusion of this analysis is that having a great testimonial really helps without Emma Watson s UN speech HeForShe would probably have continued just as in the previous 6 months Influencer marketing clearly works But the less obvious conclusion interesting also for those social media managers who can t get a big name testimonial to speak at the UN General Assembly is that having a dedicated account for a campaign constantly keeping the fire up under the kettle can really make a big difference HeForShe was able to do just that constantly putting out great content and proactively engaging their target audience This is a good reminder that if content is king then consistency is certainly queen Hashtags As Labeled Rooms Where Communities Meet Tuesday February 24th 2015 by Dan Last time we spoke about hashtags as labeled sections on a bulletin board This is a good analogy when you think about disseminating messages that you want to draw attention to But the bulletin board analogy doesn t reflect the social aspect of social networks As a matter of fact hashtags aren t just a fundamental tool to broadcast information to the right audience they re also a great tool to find and meet people who share your interests both personal and professional ones Among these people you can find those that can help you extend your influence through their own larger audiences therefore further amplifying and endorsing your message To visualize this point of view a much more fitting analogy are the rooms of a club It s no coincidence that the inspiration for adding hashtags to Twitter came from chatrooms When Twitter was small and users were few having genuine conversations was much more prevalent than it is today Chris Messina the inventor of the hashtag suggested to adopt this convention exactly to create rooms where you could discuss specific subjects even with people you didn t know yet This helped creating many interest based communities Hashtags allowed you to discover like minded people and then connect with them People who had something interesting to share could easily build a following and meaningful relationships With the gargantuan size of today s Twitter and that of the other major social networks this is a much rarer event but not all is lost Room Types The Public Square The biggest rooms the most popular hashtags don t look like rooms at all They rather resemble big and noisy squares with hordes of people incessantly coming and going and all of them wanting attention In these rooms squares there is usually very little sense of community if at all and if you asked who are the leaders influencers you would mostly come out with some out of reach celebrities that from time to time come to grace the onlookers with their hyper amplified messages and maybe get a buzz going for a few hours For most marketers and communicators finding meaningful connections in these places is really a hit and miss game with much more misses than hits Try your chance if you want but our suggestion is to focus on much better playing fields Most viral hashtags hashtags about current world events and very general interest subjects generate Public Square rooms Room Types The Specialty Room Some subjects like for example data visualization techniques or embroidery have an inherently smaller audience But also the subjects with the broadest appeal like music or news have more specialized sub subjects of various niche levels think classical music or Vatican City local news It is at this smaller and especially niche level that healthy online communities can still form around one or more specific hashtags forming their own specialty rooms These thriving communities have their own unwritten rules and most often some widely recognized reference points their top influencers Here you can also build your own significant or at least useful relationships This will usually require a healthy investment in time resource and budget too but if you find the right hashtags and communities it will give you the highest long term return We ll go into more details in future lessons but the general process can be summarized in these steps Find some right sized and well functioning communities in your field of interest and their rooms hashtags Find their influencers study them and learn the unwritten rules and conventions Participate and add value to the community without focusing too much on yourself and your message Strike significant relationship always keeping an eye on the top influencers that are within your reach but without focusing only on them Room Types The Branded Room Until now we focused mostly on industry interest hashtags which usually come from the bottom up in a completely organic way A different case is the campaign hashtag purposefully created and steered by some organization or business This brings us to the branded room The biggest difference between these rooms and the former ones is that here we have somebody who worked hard to invite people to their room and keep them engaged And somebody who if successful is officially recognized by most members as the leader of the community Somebody who also had a specific goal in mind for this community The situation that interests us now is when you re not the one who built the room So is it possible to create meaningful relationships here The short answer is Yes if the room still resembles the specialty room we talked about before with a thriving community and if your goals aren t in direct conflict with the creators ones The same process can still apply But what if your goals are conflicting with the creators Well depending on the situation you could either find other rooms or you could try to hijack it But that is another story and shall be told another time And before we finish we ll quickly mention two special cases of branded hashtags rooms the event hashtag and the Twitter chat For different reasons these two cases are very relevant and we ll talk about these in the lesson about the hashtags lifecycles Conclusion Congratulations You have finished the introductory part of our Advanced Marketing course We re still writing the next lessons which will be more practical how tos about various common tasks for social media marketers But you don t need to wait if you want to apply the concepts we explained You can start from our Labs which include guided tours and detailed guides to among other things Automatically get hashtags suggestions from the sweet spot in our Users Lab Analyze a hashtag and find it s top influencers to connect to in our Hashtags Lab Hashtag Marketing Hashtags as Bulletin Board Labeled Sections Wednesday February 18th 2015 by Dan From a marketer s or in general communicator s point of view there are two main ways to looks at hashtags As labeled sections on a bulletin board As labeled rooms where people meet It is very useful to keep in mind this distinction when dealing with hashtags in this first lesson of the advanced course we ll focus on the first point of view and what this can teach us about choosing hashtags Bulletin Board Labeled Sections As we explained in greater detail in the 101 course the original use of hashtags is to highlight what the subject of a message is This is very important in public places where everybody can send their messages eg on a public bulletin board in a University If you want your message to be found by people who would be interested in what you re talking about and don t already know you where would you like to post your message On the left side of the board or the right one Not using a hashtag is just like pinning your message on the left side on a board that has millions of new messages posted every day so your own will get submerged in a matter of seconds And what about choosing exactly which hashtags to use It s pretty obvious that you should choose labels where your message will be relevant that is necessary but not sufficient on its own to maximise your reach The size of the labeled section is also very important Our Hashtags Encyclopedia on hashtagify me gives a 0 100 popularity rating to each hashtag In our analogy the popularity is proportional to the size of the section of the bulletin board dedicated to the label hashtag Too Popular A very popular hashtag has lots of people looking at it and a lot of dedicated real estate on the bulletin board but it also has hundreds of thousands of messages posted to it every day In our bulletin board analogy there is a board administrator let s call it Twitter Search who is continually managing the messages on the board pinning to the top for a longer time only the messages that are either a very important poster or that immediately get a lot of acclaim from onlookers So unless you re some kind of celebrity incredibly good at catching attention or very lucky posting to a very popular section hashtag will mean that your message will be submerged after a few seconds or minutes Almost as if you had posted the message under no label at all Not Popular Enough At the other end of the spectrum there are sections of our board that are so little known that nobody ever looks at them If you post there your message could stay at or near the top for a very long time but nobody will see it anyway This is what happens 99 of the time when people create their own hashtags without giving them a valuable reason to search for it and or without promoting it enough you ll own your hashtag but nobody is looking at that part of the board it s wasted space and time The Sweet Spot For most people the sweet spot lies somewhere in the middle You want hashtags that are Very relevant to your content Popular enough that people are actively searching for them Not too popular compared to your current clout so that your messages have a chance to be seen At a practical level this means that it usually pays off to search for many specialized hashtags in your field that have a popularity of at least 25 30 on hashtagify me and to alternate them in your tweets instagrams etc Depending on your personal clout and on how popular your field is in general it can also make sense to use the more general hashtags for that field especially if their popularity is below 80 These rankings provide a guide but to really optimize for your specific situation you should experiment and measure your results We ll see in a later lesson how using our pro Users Lab features can make both finding the specialized hashtags and measuring the results of your experiments much easier but this is also something that you can do manually just using our free Encyclopedia and keeping count of the retweets and likes you get if you have enough time to invest in this Conclusion This first advanced hashtag marketing lesson laid down the first part basic concepts that guided us in building our Hashtagify tools The next lesson will explain the second half if you want to read it now free on hashtagify me PS Did you know that you can easily compare the popularity of different hashtags for the last 2 months Check out our Hashtags Encyclopedia guide Hashtags 101 Hashtags Are Free For All But Tuesday February 10th 2015 by Dan At least for now on Twitter and the other major social platforms that support hashtags anybody can use any hashtag they want any way they want You can even invent a hashtag on the spot just by adding the hash pound symbol in front of any word combination of words or random sequence of characters and numbers as long as the sequence doesn t contain spaces or punctuation One important thing to know is that when you search for a hashtag on Twitter the search engine ignores character capitalization WORD is the same as word But for your readers capitalization is very important when you use hashtags made from more words be sure to capitalise the first letter of each word This will make the hashtag much easier to read and will avoid possible misinterpretation The Grassroots Origin of the Hashtag When in 2007 Chris Messina first proposed to use hashtags on Twitter to show that a tweet belonged to a specific grouping this started as a completely grassroots convention Even if Twitter didn t give any special status to hashtags until two years later they still worked well for this goal because only one thing was required if you search for posts containing Word the search should only show you posts with Word and not those with Word without the hash This still remains the core of the hashtag a convention to show that your post is specifically about Something instead of one where you just mentioned the word something in passing And an easy way for anybody to find all the posts about Something When their use was already wide among early adopters Twitter started adding some specific features to make it easier to use hashtags First it automatically highlighted all hashtags and made them clickable to easily search all the tweets for that hashtag Then it started prominently showing a list of the top trending hashtags These two simple additions made hashtags evident for everybody not only those in the know and Twitter immediately became a much more useful platform for discovering interesting trends and topics A few years later all the other major social platforms added the same or similar features OK you can But should you Let s sum it up any combination of characters or numbers without spaces or punctuation that begins with the hash symbol is a hashtag You are free to use any hashtags you want in your posts and when you do so that hashtag will become highlighted and clickable for the reader to easily find all the other tweets using that hashtag Last when people search for that hashtag they could find your post So should you use any possible hashtag in your posts As you might have already guessed or read elsewhere the answer is no Why not Because using random hashtags is considered spam and has many more downsides than upsides First of all if people search for This and find your tweet that talks about That but where you also hashtagged the word This just to

find your tweet that talks about That but where you also hashtagged the word This just to increase your findability at best they will ignore you At worst they will mark you as a spammer and if enough people do this your content will become penalised by Twitter and most other platforms Second even your followers and other people who are actually interested in That and who could like your content aren t going to appreciate you using irrelevant hashtags and even using too many relevant hashtags will irritate many people who could stop following you just for this reason According to most research the optimal number of relevant hashtags for a post with interesting content on Twitter is 2 or 3 on Instagram you can actually use more But how do you define relevant Hashtags Relevancy How to actually choose the right hashtags will be the subject of entire future lessons But the basic principle can be summed up in just three words meet people s expectations If a user searches for the hashtag PhotoOfTheDay what does she expect to find In this case it s pretty obvious an interesting picture So if you re posting a beautiful picture of your backyard taken today this hashtag is highly relevant This isn t enough to say that you should use this hashtag to get the best results but it s enough to say that you can use it and not get any backlash Many people think that a hashtag like PhotoOfTheDay would also be great for a post sharing an article about cameras After all many people interested in photos are also interested in cameras but when somebody searches for PhotoOfTheDay his expectation is definitely not to find articles about cameras That user could find your article interesting if he found it at the right time but if you do not meet his expectations when he executes his search you re much more likely to get no reaction at all or even a negative reaction And always remember that your followers will judge your hashtags and your respect for readers So don t fall into temptation and when in doubt always try to think what would your expectation be if you searched for a given hashtag Conclusion Congratulations You have finished our Hashtags 101 course The next lesson will be published next week for the Advanced Hashtags course where we re going to start delving deeper into the secrets of hashtag marketing But you can read it now together with all the other Hashtag Marketing lessons if you sign up free for hashtagify me just go here Hashtags 101 The Power Of Hashtag Marketing Monday February 2nd 2015 by Dan Hashtags today are everywhere from Twitter posts to billboard ads and TV commercials but you shouldn t use them just because everybody else does To get great results you need to understand hashtags and how to use hashtags strategically The first step in creating any strategy is to know your goals and that s exactly what we re going to talk about in this first installment of our Hashtags 101 course the main goals that hashtags can help you achieve We ll talk about what hashtags are in the next lesson Increase Your Content s Reach The first and most obvious reason to use hashtags is to reach beyond your usual followers and gain penetration into broader digital communities We ll go into deeper details about how and why this works in the future but for now we ll focus on the kind of results you can expect to get if you start using hashtags well There have been many quantitative studies conducted by Twitter and others on this They have all found that using hashtags in a tweet boosts the chances of it being retweeted favorited clicked on or answered the increase is consistently measured between 50 and 100 These numbers are an average for all tweets with hashtags including the tweets with bad hashtags So with a good strategy you can expect even better results And the effect isn t limited to Twitter using hashtags brings higher reshares on Instagram and Google Plus too The exception is Facebook studies have shown that hashtags there have a detrimental effect on posts interaction But if you want your content to reach more eyeballs on Twitter Instagram or Google Plus you need to invest some time in hashtags Gain high quality followers High quality followers those who engage with you and are therefore genuinely interested in what you share and will also help you spread it even more are hard to gain You need to consistently publish interesting content engage with other people and add value to the community hashtags help you do this by acting as a multiplier of your work This is a direct consequence of increasing your reach Sharing great content isn t enough people need to see it before they can even think about sharing it or starting to follow you Moreover hashtags can also be used to learn what your followers are interested in Find and connect with relevant influencers and prospects Hashtags can also be used to find and learn about influencers and your target audiences Connecting with already known influencers in your field is one of the fastest ways to increase your own influence Using hashtags and the right tools it s easy enough to find not only who those influencers are but also what they re interested in and specifically what you have in common This can really help your engagements with them become much more meaningful and impactful Depending on your field of market the same techniques could also be useful to find and connect with potential customers Create a viral hashtag to multiply the power of your campaign At the beginning of this lesson we cited the usage of hashtags on billboards and TV ads This is the most visible use of hashtags but it is actually a pretty specialised and limited one for most brands as it depends on having lots of resources Indeed creating and promoting your own hashtag is something that only makes sense in a few but important cases when you have a campaign with a big budget or when you can already rely on a high visibility or big fan base for your campaign In those cases a custom hashtag can greatly multiply the power of your communication especially if you can reach the nirvana of hashtag marketing going viral We ll talk about these cases in the advanced course Conclusion This was just an introduction to the world of hashtag marketing there are also other goals that hashtags can help you reach but those listed here are in our experience the most important and most common ones If you would like to achieve at least one of these goals you have a very good reason to learn how to use hashtags at their best We ll publish the next Hashtags 101 lesson on this blog next week But you can read it now together with the Advanced Hashtags lessons if you sign up free for hashtagify me just go here More Inspiration Better Hashtagification Influence Amplification Thursday November 13th 2014 by Dan Last time I interviewed Hashtagify Research Assistant the man who isn t intimidated by our 38 million hashtags and that will help you find and analyze new hashtags Today s interview is with our other new recruit Hashtagify Tutor the girl who will help you actually use those hashtags following a plan towards higher social media reach and success Hashtagify Tutor Dan Good morning Tutor Can you introduce yourself to our readers Tutor Good morning Dan I m a senior student at the Hashtagify University I really love social media and I like to help other students when I have the time So I m known by everybody as The Tutor and few believe me when I tell them that Tutor is actually my given name Wow Tutor have you sued your parents yet Anyway I know that you really love to help that s the main reason I decided to hire you So can you explain to our readers how exactly are you going to help them with their social media work As a tutor I noticed that the most difficult thing for most social media practitioners who want to master the subject is to stay motivated with their effort and to be consistent with their messaging I also noticed that it really helps to have some kind of reference plan to follow and somebody who keeps you inspired to follow it And that s where I come into play at least for the part related to hashtags So we re talking about a plan related to hashtags How would that work and how can that help anybody to stay motivated and consistent Hashtags are useful to define an area of interest and to reach the audience that is interested in that area When you want to become an influencer in some field it really helps to have a list of the most relevant hashtags in that field and to use them consistently with your messages which obviously need to be highly relevant and very interesting My role is to remind you when you have been neglecting a useful hashtag for some time alert you when a new interesting hashtag is emerging and to give you inspiration about what you could write or share Receiving inspiration is nice But couldn t you just write my tweets for me I could but then you would never become a real influencer You need to use your own judgement and personality even when just retweeting some good content You absolutely need to add something personal to the social media conversation otherwise people could think you re just a bot Who wants to engage with a bot Fair enough Regarding inspiration what s your plan How could you inspire me One of the best way to get inspired is to see great examples to follow That s why when I will suggest you a hashtag you could use I ll also show you great relevant content that you can take inspiration from or just retweet Not just from Twitter but also from Instagram visuals can give even more inspiration I get it Besides it s a good idea to retweet a lot it shouldn t be all about you One last question Do you think that you could also help expert hashtag users or just beginners and intermediate I think that my tutoring will be most helpful to beginners and intermediates but even the experts could use some inspiration from time to time And for them I can limit myself to sending a daily email with a quick reminder about the hashtags they haven t used for some time and even more importantly the new trending ones related to their field Well Tutor thank you very much for your time and see you next week on hashtagify me Thanks Dan and see you The Man Who Isn t Intimidated By 38 Million Hashtags Monday November 10th 2014 by Dan When was the last time you had to search for some new hashtags For example because you wanted to reach a wider audience or just to show you re always in the know about the new trends in your field If you re at all like me that was not long ago And again if you re at all like me you feel that having to sift through the millions of hashtags people use these days is a pretty daunting task If this is the case you ll be glad to meet Hashtagify s latest hire the Research Assistant I introduced him a week ago you might remember that he boasts of knowing all the 38 million hashtags we classified at hashtagify me to be able to find many new targeted hashtags just by taking a look at your Twitter account and that he ll start working next week I thought you might want to know a bit more about him He s a reclusive guy so to give a better introduction I went to his laboratory and interviewed him for you This is the transcript of our talk Dan Hi Assistant So the rumors say that you know everything about more than 38 million hashtags Is that true Assistant Hi Dan Well to be honest with

    bum on Instagram Dove decided to encourage women to turn this idea of the selfie on its head publishing pictures that highlight their most disliked feature This is exactly what mother and daughter duos do in the short film Dove used to kickstart the campaign appropriately titled Selfie and first presented at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival Dove s own research revealed that 63 of women believe social media is influencing today s definition of beauty more than print film or music This data contributed to inspire their target market to participate actively and use the campaign s own hashtag BeautyIs together with the already famous selfie to help young women redefine what beauty is We want to see YOUR beauty Use BeautyIs to share your selfie on Twitter and Instagram nofilter bigsmile pic twitter com nrWnIHYRbb Dove Dove March 14 2014 The Challenge Take an Honest Selfie No Filters No Edits Dove BeautyIs selfie nofilter pic twitter com 7ZAlWqCsee Brittany thirty3anda3rd March 14 2014

Redefinedbeauty Founder of www beautifully me http t co HdYTiVzxRA Join the dove campaign pic twitter com aCmbFQhURD Tamyara Brown Beautymeundefin January 24 2014 It s no wonder that the video went viral and its two versions reached a total of almost 7 million views Going against the grain of a big hashtag worked well for Dove and in the process it also helped the larger movement to empower women to redefine the traditional perception of beauty using the selfie b Use the power of irony Can you create a very ironic and surprising selfie about your product This can really get attention Take the cue from Star Wars Instagram account c Contests This is a well known option but we couldn t skip it Contests are a very powerful way to get people to participate in your campaign and get more word of mouth advertising like the one Kenneth Cole that ran from January 31 to March 31 2014 Here people had to follow the official account and use the DressForYourSelfie hashtag to join the contest together with selfie Attaching to an existing and very relevant hashtag the contest was able to gain a higher visibility faster Foodporn With over 220 million impressions from 89 224 tweets in a week FoodPorn is still as widely used if not more today than on its debut a few years back 90 photos are uploaded with the Instagram hashtag foodporn every single minute Even if this hashtag is mostly used by food blogs and average social media Joes to share pictures of food that want to make you cry and say sorry to your diet it is possible to use it creatively a Turn it into a social cause Nothing encourages goodwill better than social causes People love knowing they can contribute to society so when you encourage your audience to do something for the greater good it resonates more than a completely self serving suggestion Hijacking the foodporn feed MealforAMeal is how Virgin Mobile together with OzHarvest kickstarted their campaign to turn the contemporary foodporn obsession into a social cause So far there have been 300 396 posts that have been turned into a meal by Virgin Mobile Find out more about this campaign here http www makingmobilebetter com au meal for a meal b Use a great call to action Even when a hashtag is overused and it s very difficult to do something people will notice among all those posts a good way to differentiate yourself is by using a powerful and relevant call to action like in these two examples Un exquisito cupcake para la tarde Compártelo sugarfactory delivery foodporn pic twitter com bFMUsM9gcm Yolopido yolopido August 19 2015 FREE DELIVERY Detroit come in and tag us with falafilldet detroitfoodies detroitfoods foodporn pic twitter com hAjzcNEXiS Falafill Detroit falafilldet October 8 2015 It s like passing along leaflets in a very crowded street even if you ll be seen by only a small percentage of passers by at least with those you have a good chance to make an impact c Make it a series Reynolds a popular foil brand aimed to piggyback on the foodporn hashtag by creating a series of recipe posts Reynolds knew their target market are into food so they developed a simple idea that would allow them to post consistently and on topic using this hashtag Drip by drip this a good way to find a bigger audience even amid an ocean of other posts but it requires patience and dedication In conclusion even overused hashtags can help your marketing campaign It s just a matter of creativity and knowing how to position your brand in that context We hope we helped you get some inspiration Happy hashtagging HeForShe How much does the Internet remember Tuesday October 13th 2015 by Jane Chua Can a social media marketing campaign have a long term impact on important topics This is exactly what UN Women tried to achieve with their HeForShe effort launched on last year s International Women s day to attack yet another time the very serious and long standing issue of sexism We want to analyze what s left of this big campaign one year and a half later Even if the official launch was on 8 March 2014 the big splash was only achieved on September 20th a full six months later And this splash came when Emma Watson became the face of the movement thanks to a momentous speech at the UN general assembly The big splash moment Who could ignore Hermione Granger s highly televised formal invitation to men to stand up for the rights of women which was the central message of the campaign Generation Y the major demographic of social media users also known as the millennial

  • #HeForShe: How much does the Internet remember? | Hashtagified!
    official account for the campaign HeForShe https twitter com HeforShe status 643769009180176384 As you can imagine even a single tweet on target using the hashtag from a celebrity with more than 19 million Twitter followers creates a big impact Twitter data for 9 10 9 24 2015 In the chart above computed for the period between Sept 10 to Sept 24 you can see that Watson s retweet was itself retweeted 1 045 times and she was mentioned 2 988 times together with the HeForShe hashtag a demonstration of just how big an influencer she still is in this campaign This explains why as you can see from the chart below taken from our Hashtags Lab analysis she is the second top influencer only after HeForShe Prior to the day of the anniversary between September 15th and 19th there were 5709 total original tweets not counting retweets As usual the catalyzer of the activity was HeForShe For example on the 16th there were 681 total tweets and the top one yet another retweet of by caitlinwithac of one of the official campaign s account messages https twitter com HeforShe status 643802338809933824 On the day of the speech s anniversary itself last 9 20 there were 1532 total tweets a good recovery from the decline in the day prior Have you guessed who the top tweet was from It s not Emma not HeForShe but EmWatsonUpdates a fan made account for updates and events in Emma Watson s career We almost wish we were as popular as miss Watson so someone else can do the tweeting for us when we forget to do it on an important day HappyAnniversaryHeForShe 1 year since EmWatson s speech for gender equality HeforShe HeForShe https t co Moz7FSEfId Emma Watson Updates EmWatsonUpdates September 20 2015 Now after the day has gone and the dust has settled who else is tweeting about HeForShe Let s look at the data for 9 21 We found that there were 1136 total tweets the top one again by HeForShe in an attempt to piggyback on Dubsmash and asking users to create videos of their favorite parts of Emma Watson s speech Dubsmash your fav moments from EmWatson s speech in honor of our 1st anniversary today Tag them with HeForShe pic twitter com PqyFSxxLUK HeForShe HeforShe September 20 2015 As expected there was a gradual drop in tweets in the days that followed with both days owing their top tweets to UN Women https twitter com UN Women status 646040013390659584 https twitter com UN Women status 646350552444628992 And this is exactly the point we wanted to get to Having a big testimonial like Emma Watson and her friends is great but the real long term impact wouldn t have been possible without the constant effort of the HeForShe social media team mainly channelled through their dedicated homonymous HeForShe account These are their stats for 9 15 to 9 23 As you can see it s them who are doing
