Twitter Ads serve to users by competing in an auction.  You can decide how much you will pay for each billable action, which depends on the objective you select. During campaign setup, we'll recommend a bid based on the targeting parameters you've selected. Learn more about our auction system and get advice on bidding. 


The price of Twitter Ads is up to you, there’s no minimum campaign spend. You choose a daily budget for your ads during campaign set up, and we will never go over this amount. Consider starting with at least $30/day to consistently reach audiences throughout the day. Set up your campaign dates and budget


Select the Tweets you want to focus on in your campaign. Choosing 4 to 5 is a good start. Include strong call-to-actions, like “sign up” or “start today.” Avoid #hashtags or @mentions in your copy so that your audience does not click away from your ad. See examples of creative best practices here.
