The City of Melbourne is going bananas with its tweeting about the festive season, with Twitter data showing its handle @Thats_Melbourne is the most engaged brand in the Christmas context so far.

Sydney isn’t far behind though with @Sydney_Sider the second most engaged with brand on Twitter in Australia when it comes to Christmas tweeting.

Sales manager at Twitter Australia, Angus Keene, said the cultural and throwback images from both accounts helped drum up the nostalgic factor.

“Cultural moments like Christmas are an opportunity to humanise your brand, let your personality shine and share content that resonates with your audience. Tweets that include rich media perform three to four times better than those without,” he said.

“We also know from recent Twitter research that Christmas shopping shopping-related buzz surges an average of 83 per cent between 8pm to 12am, so make sure you time your Tweets to capitalise on this increase.”

In third place so far is @sonypicturesnz, despite only having one tweet. It was the video content that helped push the brand to the top five.

Fourth was @ANZStadium…


And fifth was @AusPost.

Being still the first week in December there’s still time for brands to overtake the City of Melbourne as the most engaged with brand.

The most retweeted tweet so far has been from the new Jennifer Lawrence move called Joy.

And the common themes have predictably been about gifts, lights, shopping and family.
