Twitter is the specialist of all the ad platforms, well at least that’s what the general consensus seems like. What it brings to the table are some really unique ways you can target your ads compared to other online ad platforms. For example, you can target by keywords that people have recently used and that’s whether it’s in their tweet or they interacted with a tweet that has it as well. Once you set up your dashboard using a connector like Power My Analytics with data warehousing(allowing you to go back and see previous data), you’ll be able to see your twitter metrics in a whole new light.
Heres a quick review of the different options for connecting Twitter and Data Studio.

Choosing the Best Twitter Connector for Data Studio
Twitter is becoming more relevant in the ad space, the targeting options are its strong suits in comparison to Facebook and the like. Although the reach is definitely not the same being able to do more with your spend is still the primary goal. Here are a couple of the top Twitter analytics metrics:
- Link clickthroughs
- Top tweets
- Top mention
- Hashtag performance
- Impressions by time of day
Just keep in mind when choosing a connector the fact that the Twitter API does not allow a query for historical data, so you need a solution that will grab the daily data and warehouse it. We have found that Power My Analytics is a great solution for this.
