Continue the Holiday Spirit with These 10 Funny and Creative Tweets
We’ve reached that odd time of the year between Christmas and New Year’s where we’re all caught in a holiday haze. Is it Monday or Friday? Can I wear my holiday sweatpants to work? Is it okay to leave my tree up until February? While you try to get back into your routine and start to prepare yourself for a new year, we’ve created a light-hearted post that’ll extend the holiday cheer just a bit longer.
Check out our top 10 favorite holiday tweets from popular brands and retailers on Twitter, who used funny and creative ways to celebrate the holiday season in 280 characters or less.
1. What would be a Twitter list without one of the most outlandish brands on social media? When you think of the holidays, Wendy’s doesn’t really come top-of-mind, but the awkward family moments around the dinner table with your weird uncle might (we all have one).
2. In their quest to spread positivity via social media, Coca-Cola shared unique creatives by other Twitter users spreading holiday cheer.
3. Who works harder than Santa over the holidays? Best Buy advertised the FitBit by showing a photo of Santa earning his milk and cookies through the many steps he took Christmas Eve night.
4. In an effort to engage with their audience, Banana Republic encouraged users to tweet their #HolidayTruth – witty remarks and sayings that we can all relate to this time of year. And let’s just say I can really relate to this holiday truth…
5. Sears advertised their holiday deals via a funny short video. In the ad, an employee decked out in holiday gear shows off their store-wide discounts, with a look at refrigerators. Quick and to-the-point videos on social media are a great way to grab the attention of users scrolling their feeds. And +1 if it’s funny.
6. The holiday season is the perfect time for music streaming companies to promote their services. Apple Music retweeted their Beats 1 station and their “expertly selected Christmas-themed tunes” (side note: it’s a pretty good playlist). Even better than the music? The hilarious photo accompanied.
7. Since this is a safe place, I’ll be the one to admit that I watch Love Actually way too many times during the holiday season. And with a cult-like following, it’s no wonder Netflix Film took the holiday season to ask some hard-hitting questions about the movie.
8. Social media is a great way to show off company culture – we would know! Kmart showed off some of their employees in their best ugly sweaters, with a link to shop them on their website.
9. Old Navy teamed up with Lyft for a unique holiday partnership, offering free roundtrip rides to their stores when you use their buy online, pickup in-store service. It’s a smart way to get customers using their service long after the holiday season.
10. And of course, we have to end the list with one of our favorite Twitter users of all time, MoonPie, who showed some respect for all the work Santa has done this holiday season.
From all of us at Numerator, we hope you had a wonderful Christmas/holiday! And that your weird uncle didn’t make the family dinner too weird.
