MUMBAI: The first two weeks of the Indian Premier League (IPL) have been breathtaking from both a cricketing stand point as well as the action being seen seeing from brands on Twitter.

Just like it did during #CWC15, Twitter compiled a list of the top brands on this IPL. Using an aggregate of Re-Tweets, Favourites and Replies, the social networking site has created a Twitter IPL Advertiser Index to acknowledge the top five brands that have excelled in the opening two weeks of the tournament.

The Twitter Brand Engagement Index and the details of what each brand did on the social networking site is as follows:

1) @VodafoneIn- Vodafone has gained a lot of momentum in the first two weeks of IPL, through a contest called #VodafoneSpeedQuiz . With tickets to matches up for grab, the brand has been able to generate a lot of buzz through this campaign. The contest is a smart way for the brand to build equity on Faster Speeds which is core of their new campaign #SpeedIsGood
