Tweet activity dashboard

What is the Tweet activity dashboard?

The Tweet activity dashboard is a tool you can use to learn more about your Tweets and how they resonate with your audience. For instance:

  • See how people engage with your Tweets in real time.
  • Compare your Tweet activity and followers, and see how they trend over time.
  • Click on any Tweet to get a detailed view of the number of Retweets, replies, likes, follows, or clicks it receives.
  • Get detailed insights into who your audience is, especially those who engage with your Tweets.
  • Download your Tweet metrics.
