Influencers on Twitter excited on successful launch of SpaceX’s Starship rocket, reveals GlobalData

Space Exploration Technologies Corp (SpaceX) witnessed a dramatic jump in influencer conversations on Twitter during the first week of March over the previous week, following the first successful landing of its Starship rocket, according to GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

On 3 March 2021, SpaceX achieved a major milestone as it launched its Starship prototype rocket SN10, though it exploded after a soft landing. It is the first one to make a soft landing in high-altitude test flight while its predecessors SN8 and SN9 could not make it. Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX, aims to prepare a Starship prototype by this year end for its first orbital flight. The company is next preparing for SN11, the successor of SN10, for prototype testing.
