Conversation Themes in the City Of Joy
News Desk, News Nation 360 : There is joy in the immediate surroundings and everyday conversation the familiar and the mundane. If 2020 is teaching everyone anything, it is this. As everyone continues to stay indoors and practise social distancing, Twitter is throwing it back to 2019, right before the world started to change. Twitter wants Indians to look back, relive and rejoice those little sources of joy that they found in their everyday lives last year through Conversation Replay, which focuses on top joyful conversations on the service around the same time last year. Manish Maheshwari, Managing Director, Twitter India said that Twitter is a modern public square where diverse voices discuss and share their views on topics and conversations that interest them. Last year, people were celebrating and revelling in many joys of life, and with Conversation Replay, their intent is to throwback to those vibrant conversations, across varied themes of joy from diverse parts of India, to encourage people to celebrate life. Sharing these conversations is their way of giving Indians a moment of happiness and reminding them that joy can still be found in little pleasures. Indians have always taken to Twitter to share anecdotes and experiences of their day-to-day lives. They write casual commentaries on food and celebrate nice weather, proving that joy is in the little pleasures. To get more insights into what brought people joy before 2020, Twitter India commissioned Quilt.AI to analyse the conversations on the service. The team studied 850,000 Tweets across 22 cities in India from the same time last year, that is September-November 2019, over a 100-day framework. The study found that the ten most talked about themes included: Animals, Celebration, Celebrity content, Doing good deeds, Family, Food, Humour, Nostalgia, Romance and Sports (listed in alphabetical order).Conversation Replay: favourite themes of joy in Kolkata Nostalgia: The pain of parting is always outlived by the joy of reliving moments : Kolkata was one of the top three cities for conversations around nostalgia on Twitter.
