2011 Digital PR Awards – Twitter Communications


Winner: Edelman – 2012 Volkswagen Beetle Reveal

On April 18, 2011, Volkswagen celebrated the global launch of the 2012 Beetle across three continents with events in Shanghai, Berlin and New York. Edelman Digital launched the @VW Twitter campaign to get consumers excited in real time about the Beetle. A 24-hour promoted trend campaign (#VWBeetle) was launched seven hours before the car was revealed, and became one of the most engaging campaigns ever on Twitter, generating more than 90 million impressions within 24 hours. The campaign had a 44.4% Twitter engagement rate and @VW saw a 16-times increase in the number of daily follows. —BM
