Twitter can be a good or a bad thing, depending on what you use it for, but there is no doubt that it has the power to portray sentiments towards one topic or another, as you are trying to condense your views on life, Universe and everything in its limited number of characters. This is what social media research firm LikeFolio is counting on when it probes user sentiments towards certain products or services, and, as you can see in the graph here, it has taken to heart to investigate the attitude towards the two mobile juggernauts Apple and Samsung, and their wares.
It turned out that Twitter users are consistently expressing more positive sentiment towards Samsung’s Galaxy phones than to Apple’s iPhones. It might have something to do with the fact that Twitter is mostly used for rants and zingers, and those about Apple, as the most profitable and popular company, abound for iPhones. Still, Samsung’s phones have been viewed more positively for a while on this particular social media platform, except for the time when the attitude took a big hit around the Note 7 battery fiasco. It has seemingly not recovered to the previous levels ever since, but still stands much sunnier above iPhone-related comments on Twitter.
