So Can You See Who Views Your Twitter Account?

The short answer is no, you cannot see who views your Twitter account. While it might be really useful to figure out who is viewing your account, especially if you're trying to build engagement, it is still impossible to do so. The only way to actually know if someone has seen your account, or at least your Tweets, is if they like or retweet something you've posted or retweeted yourself. It is possible to figure out which of your posts are popular, but you can't actually know if someone came across one of your Tweets on your page, on their dashboard, or through a friend. Twitter loves to keep you guessing.

Don't Download Apps That Claim To Show Profile Visits

Every once in a while, you may come across a post online that promises something amazing and to get it, all you have to do is download an app. Don't do this! People know the sort of technology people are interested in online and purposefully make viruses that will steal your information. If you see something that promises to let you see everyone that views your Twitter profile, ignore it. The technology might be available someday, but it isn't yet.

What About Twitter Analytics?

Twitter Analytics is a wonderful feature of Twitter that allows you to "measure [the] engagement" of your Tweets, "explore the interests, locations, and demographics of your followers," and to "track Retweets." Analytics can really make your experience on Twitter a lot better. That being said, it still can't and won't tell you who views your Twitter account. Still, it isn't a bad idea to turn Analytics on, especially if you use the social media site for some sort of business or promotion.

It Comes Down To Your Privacy Settings

If your concern is keeping certain people from viewing your Twitter page, then privacy settings are your best friend. It is possible to change your privacy settings so that people must first have your approval to follow your account and subsequently view your Tweets. If you don't want certain people from seeing your Twitter account, block them if you know their account handle and make sure your settings are as private as possible.
