After that, Twitter took a run for #NationalRunningDay, cleaned up its act for #WorldEnvironmentDay, and had a delicious finish with #NationalDonutDay.

Fitbit was smart to leverage user-generated content.
Twitter also lit lip in celebration of @Caitlyn_Jenner's debut earlier this week. After gaining more than a million followers in around four hours, Jenner broke Twitter records and trans rights barriers.
