Twitter is where communities form and thrive, where people gather to have conversations with others with common interests and passions, and to find out #WhatsHappening. From sports to entertainment, culture to current affairs, Twitter is where like-minded creators and fans can stay connected, no matter which part of the world they are in.

Music is a unifying force and one of the most powerful communities on Twitter. From K-pop, Rock, Country, to Jazz, EDM, or Classical music, there is a community for everyone. Even local musicians and songwriters have found their place on Twitter where they can share their work and engage with their fans. Mentions of โ€˜local musicโ€™ or โ€˜local DJsโ€™ across Southeast Asia were up 65% (Jan-May 2020 VS Jane-May 2021), demonstrating the vibrant music community on Twitter.
