MUMBAI:  Social media platform Twitter has released the list of top advertisers who were successful in using the micro blogging platform to reach out to their respective audiences through digital conversations, for week two during the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. 

The list has been compiled using an aggregate of re-tweets, favourites and replies, to come up with the Twitter Brand Index to acknowledge the top five brands from over 50 brands.

Axis Bank has continued to build engagement around cricketing rituals. Knowing how big the game is in India people have been tweeting about how they do not take baths before games, drink water during games or (more popularly) leave their seats when a particular player is on a roll. Axis Bank used this insight to great effect by inviting people to share their rituals. "They?ve been able to sustain engagement by continuing activity on Twitter beyond just Match Days to having an always on strategy," states the report. The top tweet for this campaign has been- https://twitter.com/AxisBank/status/569127038268923905

Secondly Nike continues to rally the Indian Supporter around the hashtag #BleedBlue Chant. This week they shared more Bleed Blue stories and asked people to share theirs. This has been one of the unifying hashtags this World Cup and Nike continues to bring the Indian fan under the Bleed Blue umbrella. The campaign top tweet for the second week has been: https://twitter.com/nikecricket/status/569329658765778944 

Thirdly Kit Kat India won the conversation this week with their casual banter on Twitter with their counterparts in South Africa. The flags of the two teams were overlaid on Kit Kat chocolate bars as part of the campaign. This also was the most retweeted tweet this week. The top tweet was: https://twitter.com/KitKatIndia/status/568740943597162497

Meanwhile Club Mahindra has continued to find creative ways to integrate stories from their resorts into the larger cricket conversation on Twitter. The report says that it had seen a jump into non India matches as well and when New Zealand defeated England they drew parallels between scenic locations in New Zealand with one of their locations here in India. The top tweet for Club Mahindra?s campaign was: https://twitter.com/clubmahindra/status/568644082374832128

And finally Cadbury 5 Star was able to bring together the Audio Card on Twitter during match day on Sunday and their brand assets ? the twin duo of Ramesh and Suresh ? to bring to their consumers specific commentary, pitch reports and post match analysis in the Ramesh and Suresh style. The top tweet for this campaign was: https://twitter.com/Cadbury5Star/status/569452254522003457
