Amazon’s annual Prime Day event took place in mid-July, with shoppers snapping up deals on everything from hair dryers to air fryers.

Ipsos iris data showed that time spent across the Amazon app and amazon.co.uk was 15% higher than it was for Prime Day 2022. The total time spent shopping more than doubled (+116%) compared to the same days in the previous week, with a bigger spike on Amazon’s app (+154%) than their website (+72%).

While some disgruntled users said they would be moving to alternative app Mastodon, our data indicates the rival app only had 25k users on Saturday – compared to Twitter’s 8.2 million. Will the arrival of Threads, from Meta, see more Twitter users tempted away from the nest?
