What best describes you?

The month of July was a ball of fun on Twitter. From a faux movie starring The Rock and Siri (courtesy of Apple), to Myer bringing Katy Perry’s Witness tour to Australia, Twitter was full of star-struck moments.

Sports and health tech were big topics this month with @LadbrokesAU and @PhilipsHealth sparking conversations. Here are the brands that had Twitter users talking last month:  

  1. @Apple

This month, Apple launched a new campaign for Siri that features The Rock — a powerful combo if you ask Twitter users in Australia who were talking about it for days! Many even tried to figure out if there was actually a real film coming out…

The Rock and Siri dominate the day. Click to watch the film. Boom. #ROCKxSIRI https://twitter.com/Apple/status/888811349668577280

2.@Myer

Much to the excitement of many Katy Perry fans, retail giant Myer announced that it will be bringing the pop princess’ Witness tour to Australia.

3. @FlyAirNZ

@FlyAirNZ has always been one for quirky, creative safety videos, so it comes as no surprise that Twitter users loved this latest instalment.

Magical creatures, a couple of giants, a jazzy suit & a whole lot of stunning landscapes. The Fantastical Journey is here. #AirNZSafetyVideo https://t.co/eFvHbbxPnH

4. @Bethesda

Gaming advocate @Bethesda praised the release of two games, Prey and Pyre, which was met with enthusiastic agreement from the Twitter gaming community.

5. @ParamountAU

As a reaction to President Donald Trump pulling out of the Paris Accord, @ParamountAU announced a sequel to environmental film, An Inconvenient Truth, and encouraged Twitter users to #BeInconvenient to save humanity.

It is RIGHT to save humanity. It is WRONG to pollute this earth. #BeInconvenient 🌍 https://t.co/cElnFzwVrF

6. @Ladbrokescomau

Football fans went wild when @Ladbrokescomau posted about Christian Eriksen’s impressive goal during the Tottenham v PSG game in Orlando.
