Some Twitter users are starting to see view counts for their tweets, at least for their own tweets.
Elon Musk initially stated on December 1 that the functionality will be available for “all tweets, just as view counts shown for all videos,” and he later reaffirmed the commitment, adding, “In a few weeks.”
When a Twitter user clicks on one of his postings, a counter has begun to appear.
Although several other Twitter users have also claimed to have the capability, it doesn’t appear to be available to everyone just yet. Many Twitter users also complain about not being able to monitor view counts on other users’ tweets at the moment.
The feature isn’t offering any fresh information at this time. It has long been possible to enable analytics for your account and view the number of “impressions” that your tweets received.
However, in order to do so, you must click on an analytics button; the view counter makes this obvious.
Musk may not have intended for users to be able to observe the number of views that other users’ tweets are receiving.
It would seem reasonable that you should be able to see how many views other users’ tweets were receiving given his claim that the service is “just like videos,” whose view counts are made public for other users to observe.
Twitter used to have a communications division, which we would have used to get more information on the subject. Musk hasn’t tweeted about the feature recently.
