Tweet Activity Dashboard
The Tweet Activity Dashboard displays Tweet data to help you optimize your performance on Twitter. You can leverage these insights to inform ongoing strategy for both paid and organic Tweets and content.

For each Tweet you send, you’ll be able to track the number of impressions, engagements, and engagement rate it's earned.
When you learn what resonates with your audience, you can start Tweeting similar content. This dashboard is a helpful place to visit when you’re thinking about planning a content calendar for your Twitter account.

How to use TAD for metricsArrow down icon
The dashboard is separated into four parts, each showcasing a different set of metrics:
1. Organic and Promoted tweet impressions and engagements
Here you'll see tweet-level metrics organized by Tweets, Tweets and replies, and Promoted tweets. You can click between the tabs for easy viewing.
Only tweets that were originally sent during the date range that you have selected will appear in this view. However, the tweets shown will display all metrics that they've accumulated since creation.
For example, if you have 'Last 7 Days' selected as your date range, only tweets that have been tweeted within the last 7 days will be displayed here. The metrics they show will be the total number of impressions/engagements/etc they've gathered over the course of their life.
2. Charts to gauge performance over time
Along the top and right side of TAD, you'll find helpful Charts that display a number of metrics over time. You can change the date range for which they display by toggling the dates in the top right corner.
- Engagement Rate
- Link clicks
These will include data from both promoted and organic tweets. The charts display metrics across all your tweets during the date range you've selected, regardless of whether they were created during that date range.
3. Tweet previews and detailed engagement metrics
Click on any Tweet in the dashboard to bring up the Tweet detail page. This will lead you to the following view, where you can see the total metrics a tweet has gained over its lifetime. Hover over any metric in the Tweet Detail page with your cursor to see its definition.
4. Export File
In the top right corner of TAD, you'll see an option to export your tweet activity data. To do this, first select the date range you wish to download. Next, you can select the Export button to receive a .CSV file of your data. Please note the .CSV file breaks out organic and promoted metrics separately, and the timezone of the export is set to UTC/GMT.
There is a 3,000 tweet cap per .CSV export, so if you're trying to export a large date range with thousands of @replies, you might have to limit the date range to successfully download your file.
