How Target my Ads to Ghana?


How can I advertise on Twitter via Ghana since it is not part of the listed Countries? Any suggestions


Hi, @ossei2. Thanks for the question.

Could you please provide a reference to the listed countries you mentioned?

Are you trying to add targeting criteria to an existing line item? If so, you can get the targeting value for Ghana with the following request:

$ twurl -H "/1/targeting_criteria/locations?q=ghana" | jq
  "data_type": "targeting_criterion",
  "data": [
      "name": "Ghana",
      "country_code": "GH",
      "location_type": "COUNTRY",
      "targeting_value": "c08f5915ceeeb806",
      "targeting_type": "LOCATION"
      "name": "Ghanaur, Punjab, India",
      "country_code": "IN",
      "location_type": "CITY",
      "targeting_value": "67cb43e4a42c3f5a",
      "targeting_type": "LOCATION"
  "request": {
    "params": {
      "q": "ghana"
  "next_cursor": null

To add this targeting to an existing line item, use the following:

$ twurl -X POST -H "/1/accounts/xxxxx/targeting_criteria?line_item_id=aaaa&targeting_type=LOCATION&targeting_value=c08f5915ceeeb806" | jq .

Please let us know if this answers your question. Thanks!

Hello, could you explain how i am to add that code and where?


@bizzlekay: Is this an Ads API question? Or are you trying to do add location targeting via the Twitter Ads UI?


I am trying to add Ghana as a location in the audience profile.


Please go ahead and contact - this forum is mainly for the support of Ads API questions. I’m sure that many countries are not listed in the drop down but would appreciate you giving them feedback that there is a need for it (and details about what client you are trying to advertise for).
