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

2) @HotStarTweets - The Twitter account for Star's Hotstar.com, @HotStarTweets generated a lot engagement around content based on updates from the games, teaser questions, trivia and a competition offering IPL tickets. @HotStarTweets is looking to take the platform's content digital to greater users and been able to engage with the online Twitter user using the most topical bits of content

3) @KingFisherWorld - The official handle of the good times this IPL; Kingfisher's campaign idea is 'Divided by teams, United by Kingfisher.' With this, the company aims to bring the followers of all the IPL teams together on a common platform to celebrate and express their love for the game. They are also team sponsors for many IPL teams and it's refreshing to see some great behind the scenes content from these teams, which @KingfisherWorld is sharing as well. The big hashtag this IPL for Kingfisher has been #UnitedByGoodTimes. This week the first preview of the new Kingfisher TVC was revealed online with the hashtag #OoLaLaLaLeO

5) @OlaCabs - Ola is the official cab partner for five IPL teams namely Chennai Super Kings (@ChennaiIPL), Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan), Kings XI Punjab (@lionsdenkxip), Rajasthan Royals (@rajasthanroyals) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (@SunRisers).

With every match, users stand a chance to win two free tickets to the match from the “Ola app” through the ‘Hit the Match Day’ icon.
