The Hottest Brands On Twitter For The Month Of July

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


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.

We’re bringing @katyperry’s Witness tour down under! Learn more: #WitnessKatyPerryatMyer

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

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.

If you only play two games this year w/ the letters P-R-E-Y, check out @ArkaneStudios Prey and @SupergiantGames Pyre!

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 ?

6. @Ladbrokescomau

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

?An thrilling 4-2 win for Tottenham v PSG in Orlando. This screamer from Christian Eriksen ?? #PSGTOT

7. @PhilipsHealth

This month, @PhilipsHealth announced an interactive Twitter campaign called #PhilipsChat to discuss how technology and data can improve healthcare.

If used properly, technology and data can improve patient lives. How are you using it? #futurehealth #PhilipsChat

8. @DefenceJobsAU

@DefenceJobsAU shares fighter jet pilot Jasmine’s journey into a defence job for Australia.

From a student working at a fast food chain to controlling fighter jet missions. See how high Jasmine has gone.

9. @SpotifyAU

To celebrate Niall Horan’s 100m streams on Spotify, the former One Directioner discussed his favourite songs and emojis in a video interview, much to the excitement of his fans on Twitter.

100m streams later… @NiallOfficial on his hit ‘Slow Hands’ (& his fav emoji of course ?) #niallhoran #OneDirection

10. @KFCAustralia

Who doesn’t love fried chicken? Promoting their new ‘Dippin’ Bucket’, KFC asked Twitter users to share their favourite dipping sauce combinations.
