You want your Twitter analytics data in a custom dashboard? It’s possible! We integrated the Twitter API in DashThis, which has added a lot of possibilities for a social media dashboard.

The following standard KPIs are available from the Preset Widgets drop-down menu:

  • • Followers Engagement
  • • Followers
  • • Listed Count
  • • Mentions
  • • Retweets
  • • Top Mentions By Followers Count
  • • Top Retweeted Posts

 

The available metrics and dimensions are:

Metrics:

  • • Listed Count
  • • Followers Count*
  • • Mentions Count
  • • Retweet Count
  • • Tweets
  • • Follower Engagement Rate
  • • Users
  • • Twitter Impressions

 

* There is no data history for the Follower counts, but we keep it so your followers count will evolve in time.

 

Dimension:

  • • Post
  • • User

 

Note: When using the metrics Users, Twitter Impressions and/or Tweets, as well as the dimension User, it is necessary to filter your data by #hashtag. Twitter’s API imposes this limitation because otherwise there would be far too much data for the system to search through.
