Key metrics for Twitter

This widget displays important engagement metrics for Twitter.

Users provides the number of Twitter handles that posted mentions returned in your results. A Twitter handle could post multiple times with your query keywords within your selected time range. We filter out duplicates to return the unique number of authors.

Mentions provides the total volume of all tweets in your selected date range.

Impressions equals the sum of the number of followers of each author that tweeted and indicates the total potential number of displays to followers. If the same author tweets more than once this will be accounted for in the calculation. E.g. if an author tweets four times, their followers are counted four times.

The activity graph shows the number of impressions per day. Hover over a point on the graph to see the number of impressions per day. To see all mentions that generated a specific amount of impressions on a given day, click on a point in the graph. The date range will change to reflect the point selected.

Reach is an estimate of the total follower count for all unique Twitter handles. It is an estimate of the potential total audience of the tweets.
