SXSW Day One Generates Over 141,000 Tweets

March 8, 2014


Our team had a great day one at SXSW Interactive and the FH black box Lounge, which was buzzing with data, social and tech enthusiasts. Things were just as active outside the Lounge as online conversations generated more than 141,000 tweets with SXSW mentions. In addition, top hashtags included #boldstage, which generated over 5000 mentions thanks to Lady Gaga’s surprise performance announcement, #btwfoundation, #ryotnews and more. Similarly, it’s no surprise that top twitter handle mentions also included @Doritos, @btwfoundation, and @ryotnews, while #tech and @mashable also made headlines around Austin.

What did you see and learn at SXSW day one, and what are you looking forward to today? Let us know with a tweet at @Fleishman using the #FHblackbox hashtag, and stay tuned for day two’s top trends.

In Austin? Our FH black box Lounge is open from 9am to 6pm in the Four Seasons. Stop by to take a break, relax and see how we’re making big data small.
