Twitter Ads pricing

Whether you’re a small business or a large brand, Twitter Ads campaigns can be customized to accommodate your budget. There is no minimum spend required for Twitter Ads, and you always have complete control over how much you want your campaigns to spend.

Plan your budget by learning more about billable actions, auctions, and bids.

Billable actions

What you will be charged for depends on the campaign objective you choose. Each campaign objective has a different billable action, and you’re only charged when that action occurs. In other words, billable actions are what you're charged for.

For example, when you choose the Website clicks and conversions objective, you will only be charged when someone clicks the link to your website. A link click is the billable action of the Website clicks and conversions campaign objective.

Learn the billable actions for each campaign objective.


The price you’ll pay per billable action is not a fixed rate. Our ads run on an auction system, where all advertisers bid on available ad space for the audience they want to reach.

How much you pay for your campaigns will depend on factors including:

  1. How engaging your ad is
  2. The size of your targeted audience
  3. How many other advertisers are also targeting that particular audience
  4. How much you bid

In general, audiences in high demand will require higher bids to run. Learn more about how your targeting criteria affects how ads run.


A bid represents how much you’re willing to pay for the billable action(s) for the objective you’ve selected.

When your campaign starts, it enters the Twitter Ads auction. There it will compete against other advertisers targeting the same audience. The ad will run based on factors including the relevance of your ads to your targeted audience, and the bid you set. The advertiser with the higher bid generally has a greater chance of winning the auction and having their ad run.

In addition to your bid, you can set a campaign budget for the total amount you want to spend.
