After all, we want to make notes directly on tweets visible to the global Twitter audience when a broad and diverse group of contributors agrees, ”said Keith Coleman, vice president of Twitter, on a blog post Office.

The social network eventually banned Trump completely, citing tweets that could lead to more violence after the Capitol uprising. However, Birdwatch’s intent is to extend these efforts beyond “circumstances where something is against our rules or receives widespread public attention,” said Coleman.

No Frills anime-style advert takes Twitter by storm

No Frill Anime Ad (Twitter)

No frills has taken the internet by storm after one of them display featured in a tweet went viral. The Canadian supermarket chain, owned by Loblaw, has been trending on Twitter since Sunday after a user drew attention to the anime-style commercial by saying, “What the hell is this ad for a fucking grocery store?”

The chain’s most recent campaign, Haulerverse, revolves around a comic book universe where buyers (also known as freight forwarders) and No Frills employees support customers in store.

The audience will follow the main Hauler crew members Meg, Nia, Jeff and Hank in an action-packed series about “Fighting the Frills and Bargaining Along the Way”.

The Haulerverse campaign aims to celebrate everyday shoppers and their goals of getting more for less.

“It’s no secret that the pandemic has changed the way customers shop, especially groceries, and we wanted our carriers to feel like no frills is bragging,” said a representative from Loblaw Public Relations.

“We knew we needed a campaign that was both ambitious and consistent, but also true to the brand. We need to celebrate our ‘haulers’ and what’s more ambitious than harnessing the bravery of the comic book superheroes?”

With the ad, customers should see themselves in the characters – from tech-savvy millennials to the older generation who have been shopping for groceries for years.

“Issue one” (in line with the comic theme) describes Haulerverse as a place where buyers can be thrifty. The no-frills weekly flyer will feature a new story each week.

The campaign includes weekly deals, a Spotify playlist, Instagram filters, stickers and GIFs.

The ad came as a surprise to most of the people as it is a unique approach to a grocery chain. However, the PR team says people responded well to the ad and campaign that started about two months ago.

“No Frills always takes an unusual approach to a grocer – and it pays off,” said a Loblaw representative. “We’ve managed to create a world that people want to talk about or participate in. It’s incredibly exciting.”

The story goes on

Here’s how more Twitter users reacted to the ad:

…. suddenly I have to go without frills. Apparently the training and skills I was looking for were right under my nose.

I love the extravagance of this campaign as someone who studies marketing makes everyone talk about it and I’m a huge fan of attention and the brand is still focused on their products which means I would rate them This is a strategy (not a tragedy) (industry joke) #nofrills https://t.co/b3aDHDaR56
