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 function could be coming for “all tweets, simply as view depend is proven for all movies,” an announcement he reiterated every week later including that it could be coming “in just a few weeks.”
One Verge employees member has began to see a counter when he clicks into his posts. Whereas just a few different Twitter customers have reported getting the function as properly, it doesn’t appear to be accessible to everybody but (for instance, at time of writing I’m presently not seeing view counts on any tweets in addition to movies).

In its present state, the function isn’t offering any new data. You’ve lengthy been capable of activate analytics on your account, and see what number of “impressions” your tweets have 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 function being “similar to movies,” whose view counts are public for different customers, does make it seem to be it’s best to be capable of see what number of views different peoples’ tweets have been getting. We’d ask Twitter for clarification on the matter, however it not has a communications division. Musk hasn’t just lately tweeted concerning the function.
