We are developing a routine to fetch and persist data about our clients campaigns daily. We researched all the documentation and started the implementation. This question is just to see if our logic is correct and following the logics you guys implemented behind the API.
We are doing like this:
1 - Fetch all client’s accounts.
2 - Check which accounts are subscribed in our system.
3 - For the accounts subscribed, we check which campaigns IDs are subscribed in our system for the that specific time range (basically figuring out which campaigns we need to fetch)
So far so good. All 100% working till here.
4 - Fetch stats for each campaign:
When we get the data, our main doubt is how to procede the parsing according with:
Since the “objective” is on the “line” level (so we dont know the objective of each campaign) and what we want is to get the whole result for the campaign, this is what we are doing:
For impressions, summing the whole combo:
promoted_tweet_search_impressions + promoted_tweet_timeline_impressions + promoted_tweet_profile_impressions
For Total Engagements, summing the whole combo:
promoted_account_follows + promoted_tweet_search_engagements + promoted_tweet_timeline_engagements + promoted_tweet_profile_engagements
promoted_tweet_search_clicks + promoted_tweet_search_replies + promoted_tweet_search_retweets + promoted_tweet_search_follows + promoted_tweet_timeline_clicks + promoted_tweet_timeline_replies + promoted_tweet_timeline_retweets + promoted_tweet_timeline_follows + promoted_tweet_profile_clicks + promoted_tweet_profile_replies + promoted_tweet_profile_retweets + promoted_tweet_profile_follows
Is that right?
Basically what we are trying to do is just ignore the “objective” and create an universal parser for whole campaigns.
