We are trying to build an application that has the ability to read Twitter analytics such as Follower Count, Engagements and Impressions. I know how to get the basic metrics such as followers but the “ads” metrics seem to be a mystery to me right now.
From what I believe, we need to enable the Ads API for our Twitter application even though we are not doing ad campaigns… just reading other accounts? We tried that and kept getting the “cannot authenticate any more users at this time” error.
How do we go about getting Engagement and Impression information? Do we have to have the ads API enabled? If so, how do we get the sandbox environment to work (we tired and could not create a new account)?
