Spirits brands fleeing the Twitter nest


We’ve done lots of work with spirits brands. So recently we were discussing amongst the team at YesMore whether they are abandoning Twitter. Anecdotally we could feel this was a resounding ‘Yes’ but our inquisitiveness has lead us to strive for a little more concrete evidence than that.

Over the past few weeks we’ve studied hundreds of brand’s social media activity on Twitter. We’ve found that a staggering 42% of spirits brands studied have abandoned Twitter with no tweets in the last month. All the spirits brands are from brand owners such as Diageo, Pernod Ricard, Beam Suntory, Campari Group, Brown Forman, Bacardi and William Grant & Sons.

YesMore have also discovered an incredible amount of spirits brands that haven’t posted in over 3 months. And some haven’t tweeted in over a year. We’ve detailed all our findings in a perfectly skimmable PDF report. You can view it in your browser or download to your device by entering your basic information below.

Included in the findings:

  • The full list of over 100 spirits brands on Twitter
  • A breakdown of which brand owners they belong to
  • The top 5 spirits brands on Twitter
  • The four key factors that have contributed to their success
  • Should you use Twitter?

Most notably, we’ve done some additional analysis on Beefeater, Auchentoshan, Haig Club, Bombay Sapphire and Makers Mark. We’ve shared initial advice on how brands can be more efficient on Twitter with their limited resources and budget, and to get better return on their investment in social media.
