Connecting artists with fans: livestreams, virtual award shows, and more

In the new normal, artists found new ways to stay connected with fans to replace the concerts, events, and other activities a typical year would bring. The #TwitterBlueroom produced many of the most popular livestream viewing opportunities to get to know the top K-pop artists better


The #TwitterBlueroom gave K-pop artists the ability to talk live directly to their fans on Twitter, as well as a chance to hear exclusive behind-the-scenes stories and other insights not available elsewhere – sometimes, artists like BLACKPINK (@BLACKPINK) even used the #TwitterBlueroom to give their fans content that they personalized for them.

Twitter collaborated with MAMA (Mnet ASIAN MUSIC AWARDS) to close out 2020 to get the favorite artists of K-pop fans closer to them than ever before. Twitter’s real-time trends worldwide and in 68 markets were topped by the hashtags #2020MAMA and #MAMA2020, with a whopping 126 million 2020 MAMA related tweets produced from 29 October to 6 December. The first use of the ‘Twitter Stanbot’, the exclusive high-quality, slow-motion videos of K-pop artists and K-drama casts, was also marked by #2020MAMA, with these videos only viewable on the official @MnetMAMA Twitter account.

Other #OnlyOnTwitter content like 1:1 Q&A, Emoji, Fleets, and Voice drove conversations and trending topics about album launches, key artist milestones, and more, to bring fans closer to their favorite K-pop artists.

More than music, K-pop idols and fans band together for social causes on Twitter

As shown by #YearOnTwitter, the second most-Tweeted hashtag of 2020 was #BlackLivesMatter as the world mobilized and amplified the need for equality and social justice. K-pop fans, as well as their favorite idols, participated in the movement by mobilizing others to use the hashtag and join the cause, as well as raise funds through initiatives like #MatchAMillion. The #KpopTwitter community’s involvement in the #BlackLivesMatter movement gave fans another way to stay connected and express their views on broader issues in society.
