Twitter view counts begin showing prominently
View counts for tweets are beginning to present up for some Twitter customers — a minimum of for their very own tweets. On December 1st, Musk promised the characteristic can be coming for “all tweets, simply as view rely is proven for all movies,” an announcement he reiterated a week later including that it will be coming “in a couple of weeks.”
One Verge workers member has began to see a counter when he clicks into his posts. Whereas a few other Twitter customers have reported getting the characteristic as properly, it doesn’t appear to be accessible to everybody but (for instance, at time of writing I’m at present not seeing view counts on any tweets apart from movies). My coworker additionally says that he’s at present not capable of see view counts on different customers’ tweets.
In its present state, the characteristic isn’t offering any new data. You’ve lengthy been capable of turn on analytics for your account, and see what number of “impressions” your tweets had been getting. Nonetheless, doing so does require clicking on an analytics button; the view counter places it proper in your face.
It’s unclear whether or not Musk meant for customers to have the ability to see what number of views different peoples’ tweets are getting. His remark concerning the characteristic being “identical to movies,” whose view counts are public for different customers, does make it seem to be it’s best to have the ability to see what number of views different peoples’ tweets had been getting. We’d ask Twitter for clarification on the matter, however it now not has a communications division. Musk hasn’t just lately tweeted concerning the characteristic.
