Ludhiana, September 15

Ludhiana has emerged as the most romantic Indian city on Twitters’ Conversation Replay in 2019.

A study commissioned by Twitter India shows that Indians found joy in everyday conversations last year. The team analysed 8,50,000 Tweets across 22 cities in the country from September to November 2019.

In addition to ‘romance’, Ludhiana was among the top three cities across themes of ‘doing good deeds’ and ‘food’. Other themes of joy that saw interest and contribution from people of Ludhiana were: ‘Animals’, ‘friendship’ and ‘humour’.

With Conversation Replay, Twitter is doing a throwback to those joyful conversations from 2019, so that people can revisit little pleasures of life again.

The study found that the 10 most talked-about themes included: Animals, celebrations, celebrity content, doing good deeds, family, food, humour, nostalgia, romance and sports (listed in an alphabetical order).

Manish Maheshwari, managing director, Twitter India, said: “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, our intent is to throw back to those vibrant conversations, across varied themes of joy from diverse parts of the country, to encourage people to celebrate life. Sharing these conversations is our way of giving people of the country a moment of happiness and reminding them that joy can still be found in little pleasures.”

“On Twitter, we see people celebrating moments of romantic love. These include vibrantly coloured pictures of couples smiling, laughing, embracing, or posing together during holidays. Images are usually decorated with stickers and text, showing a touch of playfulness and light-heartedness,” he said.

Twitter is also the space for celebrating friends and documenting memories made with them. Likewise, friendship was also one of the top themes of joyful Twitter conversations in Ludhiana last year.

Humour on Twitter is candid, deadpan and without restraint, and was one of the top conversation themes that brought joy to people in Ludhiana last year. While Ludhiana topped the charts for conversations on romance and Raipur-led conversations around animals. Bhubaneswar had the most conversations around family and doing good deeds, whereas Mumbai led conversations on nostalgia.
