2019 is now officially halfway done - and we're only six months (and a bit) away from 2020.
Note to philosophers of days past: There are no flying cars as yet, but we do have camera filters that make you look like a baby. So there's that.
This week, Twitter has published its latest monthly events calendar, highlighting all the key dates and events of note happening in June.
Twitter's event calendars are particularly helpful for social content planning, because they don't only highlight the key dates and events, but also their respective tweet volume stats, based on previous years. This further underlines exactly which events are likely to generate increased social media discussion - and which you should consider tapping into to maximize exposure.
So what are the key dates to be aware of in June?
Twitter's main two highlights of note are:
- #FathersDay (692M Tweet impressions): June 16th
- #TourdeFrance (1.9B Tweet impressions): June 29th
Both will see significant focus, and have wide-ranging interest, which could make them perfect for campaign tie-ins. Other general events to be aware of include #NationalSelfieDay and #BestFriendsDay, while June is also Pride Month, which may be something to celebrate with your community.
As noted, Twitter's monthly event calendars can serve as a great reminder for your strategic planning. If you're looking to get an even bigger head start, you can download Twitter's full 2019 major events calendar here also.
