what does "user follower count" mean on Twitter


as you can see in the title, i wonder what they mean by the metric "user follower count"? 

Is that simply the count on my tweets followers, followers?

I wonder because I'm trying to count the reach on my tweets.



  • Hi Kelvin,

    User follower count in Twitter Simple Connector (under Twitter user data) is the number of followers on the Twitter account(s).

    Under "Twitter tweets by keyword" -you can select fields like "Tweet like count" and "Tweet retweet count" for those particular tweets.

  • Hi,

    thank you for the reply.

    What i mean is, under "twitter tweets by keyword" you can then chose the metric "User follower count".
    What I want to know is what the numbers there comes from, cause it's not my accounts follower count.

    Can that field maybe be the count on how many followers the people who interacts with my tweets has?

  • Hi Kelvin,

    direct quote from Twitter's developer site about User Follow Count used with tweets by keyword: "Perspectival attributes embedded within this object are unreliable."

    Unfortunately there's nothing we can do about it as we only show the numbers that the data source API delivers.
