A quick look at early #CES2015 tweets

The 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has officially kicked off in Vegas, and we wanted to take a look at the early chatter around it on Twitter (like we did last year), specifically yesterday and so far today, the first full day of the conference.

 Most retweeted tweets

3 of the 10 most retweeted tweets so far this year are about products, but not gaming consoles or the latest smart glasses; they’re about cars.

The tweet from 2Wired2Tired is so far the most retweeted of all around #CES2015 and it’s unusual that it’s not from a tech reporter, tech blog, or brand, but just someone with an interest in tech.

Other brands and products mentioned in the top ten most retweeted tweets were a smart belt to curb overeating, Intel promoting their keynote (and the future of wearable tech), Lenovo’s first wearable, and Intel’s new chip.

So far it’s the tech blogs driving the conversation- not brands- just like we saw back in 2011:

  1. CNET
  2. Mashable
  3. TechCrunch
  4. Samsung Mobile
  5. Intel

Top Hashtags

Two of the big tech blogs have created their own CES-specific hashtags this year, further driving the conversation:

  1. #CES2015
  2. #CES
  3. #CEScrunch (TechCrunch’s hashtag)
  4. #MashCES (Mashable’s hashtag)
  5. #IoT (Internet of Things)

We’ll be keeping an eye on the CES conversation as it grows- 222.9k tweets so far today and yesterday- and changes over the next few days, even taking a look at the chatter over on Instagram and Tumblr for the first time. Stay tuned!
