June was a month full of mesmerising pictures and videos, from custom made video invitations for @chrissyteigen from @FlyAirNZ to kookaburras and a breathtaking collage of images taken on the iPhone. It was also a big month for sports on Twitter, with the State Of Origin and NBA Finals both taking place – @tabcomau and @sportsbetcomau weighed in on the two games, which gained them strong attention from followers.
