Twitter’s New Feature Allows You to See How Many People Viewed Your Tweet. The past months have shown to be confusing for tons of Twitter users. With Elon Musk’s as the new CEO, and the controversial takeover of the social media platform in late October, Twitter has undergone some major changes when it comes to terms of feature and policy updates.

Twitter’s New Feature Allows You to See How Many People Viewed Your Tweet

The Most recent example of a significant departure on Twitter was the decision that limits what twitter described as the “free promotion of certain social media platforms while Twitter quickly backtracked on this rule, this policy quickly barred people from sharing links to competing social media platforms like Mastodon, Instagram or Facebook.

Twitter’s Latest Feature

With Elon Musk as the CEO, several new features were promised to Twitter which included some long-demanded ones like the ability to write much longer posts or edit tweets. As of November 2022, Musk also shared his vision for what he referred to as Twitter 2.0, in which the platform gets better advertising avenues for brands, enabling end-to-end encryption on DMs, and revamping Twitter’s paid blue subscription service.

However, the revamped Twitter Blue Subscription was quickly hit with issues, after which Twitter decided to roll back the feature. Early in December, Musk relaunched the Twitter blue subscriptions to anyone who paid for the service, offering them a “Verified” checkmark and access to features that are exclusive.

Another feature that was discussed by Elon Musk when he newly acquired the franchise was allowing users see a view count for tweets. The features were scheduled to arrive on December 22, 2022 and it was to roll out to users across the world.

Twitter Now Shows View Counts on Individual Tweets

On December 22, 2022, Several users on twitter reported seeing a view counter appear on individual tweets. The view counter became even more visible when users click and expanded their tweets. Accounts that have gotten this feature, could see they could view the counter right next to the “like” and “retweet” buttons.

Later in the Day, Musk Stated that the feature “View Counter” has finally started rolling out to everyone. He stated that the feature would enable users to know how “Alive” the social media platform is.

Twitter Video Counter

Twitter already had a feature that is similar to this one, and it was on uploaded videos to the platform for quite a while. However, you should note that the feature completely differs from the “Tweet Analytics” feature that has been available for quite some years now.

While this feature enabled users to check just how well their tweet performed, it was always a few clicks away and was not directly viewable. Another key difference with the new view counter is that, unlike analytics, the number of views if quite visible to everybody.

It seems not all Twitter users seem to have gotten the view counter update at the moment. While Twitter has not yet confirmed this, it seems as though the feature is being rolled out in phases across the Twitter user base.
