Tweet and Video Activity Dashboards

The Tweet Activity Dashboard (TAD) and Video Activity Dashboards (VAD) display data to help you optimize your performance on Twitter. You can leverage these insights to inform ongoing strategy for both paid and organic Tweets.

For each Tweet you send, you’ll be able to track the number of impressions, engagements, and its earned engagement rate. For every video you post to Twitter, you can track retention, view rates, and completion rates. Once you learn what resonates with your audience, you can start Tweeting similar content. This dashboard is a helpful place to visit for content planning.

TAD and VAD data

This is the data your Tweet Activity Dashboard (TAD) and Video Activity Dashboard (VAD) displays. For both, you can change the date range for Tweets and videos you want to view in the top-right corner. 

You can also export this data as a .CSV file for both dashboards. The file will include all Tweet-level data and permalinks, broken down by organic vs. promoted metrics. First select the date range you wish to download, then select "Export" to receive a .CSV file of your data. The timezone of the export is set to UTC/GMT.
 

Please note: You can export up to 30 days of data at a time and 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 may have to limit the date range into smaller increments to successfully download your data.

In your Tweet Activity Dashboard, you can view data on: 

  1. Organic and Promoted Tweet impressions and engagements. Tweet level metrics organized by all Tweets, Tweets and replies, and Promoted Tweets.
  2. Charts to quickly gauge month-to-month performance. These charts include details on impressions, engagement rate, link clicks, Retweets, likes, and replies. These will include data from both promoted and organic Tweets. Hover over any metric in the Tweet detail page to see its definition. 
  3. Tweet previews and detailed engagement metrics. Click on any Tweet in the dashboard to bring up the Tweet Detail view, which includes metrics such as Retweets, likes, replies, and more.

In your Video Activity Dashboard, you can view data on: 

  1. Retention rate. This is the average percentage of your video that people on Twitter watch.
  2. View rate. This is the rate that your video is watched in 50% view for 2 seconds or more, or when someone clicks to expand/unmute your video. You can also filter by promoted views on your videos. 
  3. Completion rate. This is the percentage of your audience that finished watching your video.

Are Tweet metrics updated in real-time?

Yes, Tweets along with their impression and engagement metrics, are usually updated within a few seconds. Please note that our systems take up to 36 hours to stabilize, so you may see a slight fluctuation in data during that time.

Do the "Tweets" and "Tweets and replies" tabs include organic and promoted data?

Yes. The data in the "Tweets" and "Tweets and replies" tab includes both organic and promoted Tweets, and the "Promoted" tab only lists Tweets that have been promoted.

When a Tweet in any tab has been promoted, it will include a row for organic data, and a row for promoted data. The first row contains organic-only metrics, and the second row labeled “Promoted in X campaign(s)” contains promoted-only metrics, summed up across all campaigns.

How can I find the campaigns where my Tweets were promoted?

The Tweet detail page includes a list of campaigns that the Tweet was promoted in. You can access this page by clicking on an individual Promoted Tweet. Clicking on the campaign will take you to that campaign page.
