Twitter Deals Out In-Depth Analytics For Twitter Cards


Over the next few days some significant marketing enhancements will be arriving on your Twitter Cards. Today Twitter announced the official release of  Twitter Card analytics that will be available to all cards users. The goal of this upgrade is to help users gain more insight into the type of media that performs the best on Twitter.

The new improved interface is geared to help uncover valuable insights and features the following main analytical elements:



This screen displays a large scale look at overall content performance on Twitter including Tweets that link to a website or app. This includes not only information from your account Tweets, but from all Tweets that have included your Twitter Card infused content.

Change Over Time


This displays overall account data over time including:

  • Tweets
  • Impressions
