So who are these Digital Creators? They’re video experts and, for Twitter, they’re often Gen Z’s celebrities with influence across cultures. They create video content across a wide range of topics that people seek out on Twitter, including beauty, cooking, politics, technology and even astrology. Digital Creator videos are stopping people in their timelines as they spend more time watching, sharing and talking about video—driving a 26% increase in conversation around Creator Culture on Twitter.

Digital Creators are savvy marketers themselves, with a knack for finding innovative ways to connect their audiences with unfiltered authenticity. Their strength is their speed and wit. In fact, their ability to fuel and feed off trends is what keeps their video content engaging for their fans and valuable for brands. They often make us laugh, lift us up and entertain us with sketches, how-to’s, hot takes, reviews, reactions and commentary. And they’re not just Gen Z folks appealing to Gen Z audiences. All demographics are watching, driving a 17% increase in video views on Twitter.
