Beachbody sought to capture Twitter buzz Thursday night as sports phenom Jeremy Lin and the New York Knicks took on (but failed to upset) Lebron James’ Miami Heat on national cable TV. The fitness marketing firm bought the keyword “#linsanity” for Promoted Tweets.
ClickZ has been observing if brands were buying the term on Twitter since the basketball story took off two weeks ago. Even though “#linsanity” has repeatedly been a trending topic, Beachbody is the first brand we’ve seen try to ride the basketball player’s coattails on the micro-blogging site.
Whenever a Twitter user clicked on the trending hash-tag or searched for the term tonight, they saw Beachbody’s ad.
