Top 50 list around the event shows which vendors were top of the media tweets
March 4th, 2013- UK media intelligence company RealWire has used its Twitter-based influencer relations tool Lissted to analyse the media’s reaction to Mobile World Congress news on Twitter.
Lissted was used to identify 7,260 relevant tweets from 1,038 journalists, bloggers, analysts and outlet accounts, analyse their content, and produce a Top 50 list of the companies, products and technologies that got the most mentions in MWC-related tweets. A word cloud of the list is available as both a downloadable slide and an image.
Nokia was the media’s most-mentioned brand, with Samsung a close contender in second place. Their Lumia and Galaxy smartphones appeared not much further down the list. The new Firefox OS from Mozilla was a hot topic, as was LG with the Optimus F Series, and Taiwanese hardware company Asus, whose new Padfone Infinity and Fonepad products made the top 50.
Also in the top ten were Chinese vendors Huawei, with the Ascend P2, and ZTE, with its Grand Memo phablet and Open smartphone. The top ten brands by mention are listed below.

Now we've developed Lissted, we can also look directly at the media impact of brands, announcements and launches during the event.
"The volume of media tweets around the event shows how crucial it is for PR professionals to filter media reaction from the general social media chatter, for an authentic, real-time insight into relevant conversations and industry influencers."
