Frequently Asked QuestionsArrow down icon
Are the numbers reported in the CSV download inclusive of all engagements or just the engagements that I’ve been billed for?
All metrics will include engagements that you aren’t billed for. For example, if a Tweet gets Retweeted and more users engage with the Retweet, these will wrap up into your numbers even though you aren’t billed for these actions.
How does the data in my CSV download differ from the Tweet Activity Dashboard export?
The Tweet Activity Dashboard should be used when analyzing organic Tweet data, while the CSV export at ads.twitter.com should be used when analyzing campaign data.
What is the difference between Export and Bulk Export?
Bulk Export allows you to export data across multiple ads accounts that you manage, while the standard Export functionality only allows for export of data within one ads account.
