Woman login twitter app mobile phone.

Twitter analytics is a free tool for everyone that provides details about your tweets’ impressions, total engagements, link clicks, the number of times people viewed the details about your tweets, likes, retweets, and more. Those data are not only related to your Twitter activities, but also to the activities of the people who follow you, interact with your tweets, or engage with your content. Twitter will scrutinize those activities and create a rich set of tweet analytics that shows how a user’s Twitter account is performing. And your Twitter activity or Twitter analytics dashboard is where you’ll find those detailed insights and download your Tweet metrics.
