New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on August 31, 2022) follows:
Twitter is one of the most popular social platforms in the world. Millions of people log in daily either to keep up with what’s going on or to share their own minds.
Updates on current events are grouped in Twitter trends. This feature allows users to receive relevant tweets according to their location and personal tastes.
Twitter is also a useful platform for business. Most big brands have their official Twitter profiles either to promote new products or to offer direct support to their customers.
Twitter analytics is one of the most useful tools that brands or community managers have on the platform. It helps them to know the number of interactions or views that each tweet has received, among other useful metrics.
Although considered a particularly useful tool for professionals, anyone can consult Twitter analytics. However, the feature is currently experiencing certain issues.
According to multiple reports, Twitter analytics is not working as users are getting an error that says ‘You may only view analytics about your own tweet’ when trying to access.
Twitter analytics ‘You may only view analytics about your own tweet’ error
Currently, many Twitter users are unable to access their own analytics due to ‘You may only view analytics about your own tweet’ error they are receiving.
Twitter, in typical censoring fashion has made it impossible to view the analytics on tweets you post on other pages. You can now only view the data on tweets you send from your own page. Can’t wait to see how much censoring they do as we get closer to the elections in November.
According to reports, the problem with Twitter analytics not working has been going on for at least a couple of days.
A request for help from a relative newb. I can’t view my analytics anymore. I get “you can only view analytics for your own tweets”, when trying to view my own tweets. Is Twitter messed up or messing with me? This just started a few days ago.
I’m unable to access my twitter analytics. Receiving a message I’m unable to view the analytics of others when I’m clicking on my own postings. it’s been tgs last two days.
