The metaverse is continuing to worm its way into the current zeitgeist with tweets on the subject skyrocketing 8181 percent according to a new Twitter report. The 2022 Twitter Trends Report shows decentralised finance (DeFi) and esports are some of the most popular conversations being had on Twitter by Australian users.
According to the report, conversations on gaming have increased by 93 percent year over year and AR is up 12 percent. The trends report analysed billions of Tweets from 2019 to 2021 and found the three biggest movements floating to the top of conversations, from finance and gaming to social inequalities. From these billions of tweets, neither Angus Keene, managing director of Twitter ANZ nor a Twitter rep could tell Digital Nation how many tweets were sent by bots.
