#WeMetOnTwitter: Love in the digital age

Jaipur, February 12, 2022.

Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and nothing warms the cockles of the heart like a good love story. In the digital age, love is just a Tweet away! It’s no surprise given that Twitter is the conversational layer of the internet and people come to the service to talk about what’s happening and connect with like-minded individuals. Oftentimes on Twitter, people find those who ‘get them’ forming meaningful bonds. In fact, people go on to share such stories on the service, recounting how they met on Twitter, with the hashtag#WeMetOnTwitter.

The conversation about #WeMetOnTwitter is steadily growing in India with 370% more Tweets about it in the last year (2021) than in 2020. Not only that, this year (2022) in just one month (January-February) we have seen the conversation increase by 28%.
