Report stats data not corresponding to data in the Ads UI


#1

Hi,

I am trying to get data for a Followers campaign but the data returned by the AdsAPI doesn’t correspond to the data displayed in the Twitter Ads UI.

GET https://ads-api.twitter.com/0/stats/accounts/18ce53z82f8/promoted_tweets
with the following parameters:

array (
  'promoted_tweet_ids' => 'cn1iw',
  'granularity' => 'DAY',
  'segmentation_type' => 'LOCATIONS',
  'start_time' => '2015-10-21T06:00:00+00:00',
  'end_time' => '2015-11-06T07:00:00+00:00',
  'metrics' => 'promoted_tweet_profile_impressions,promoted_tweet_search_impressions,promoted_tweet_timeline_impressions,promoted_tweet_profile_follows,promoted_tweet_search_follows,promoted_tweet_timeline_follows,promoted_tweet_search_engagements,promoted_tweet_timeline_engagements,promoted_tweet_profile_engagements,promoted_tweet_profile_clicks,promoted_tweet_search_clicks,promoted_tweet_timeline_clicks,promoted_tweet_profile_url_clicks,promoted_tweet_search_url_clicks,promoted_tweet_timeline_url_clicks,promoted_tweet_profile_retweets,promoted_tweet_search_retweets,promoted_tweet_timeline_retweets,promoted_tweet_profile_favorites,promoted_tweet_search_favorites,promoted_tweet_timeline_favorites,promoted_tweet_profile_replies,promoted_tweet_search_replies,promoted_tweet_timeline_replies,promoted_tweet_profile_engagements,promoted_tweet_search_engagements,promoted_tweet_timeline_engagements,conversion_custom,conversion_downloads,conversion_purchases,conversion_sign_ups,conversion_site_visits,billed_charge_local_micro',
)

the response:

For example, the total number of impressions on the 25th of October, 2015 is reported as being 4,457, but in the Twitter Ads UI this number is 6,997. There are differences for other metrics as well, for example the number of follows received (12 in the API and 60 in the UI, on the 25th of October).

There are big differences so this looks like a bug.

Thank you.

Hi,

The most common reason for this is that a metric was not included when summing the impressions based upon the campaign’s objective type. The derived metrics page includes formulas for how to compute the same impressions as seen in Ads UI. https://dev.twitter.com/ads/analytics/metrics-derived

For Followers campaign, the impressions actually starts with “promoted_account_”. You will still see timeline impressions because follower campaigns can be shown on timeline if a tweet is associated with that line item. That note is described on the Line Item page https://dev.twitter.com/ads/reference/post/accounts/%3Aaccount_id/line_items

Thanks,

John

Hi @JBabichJapan! Thank you for replying. Please see promoted_account_impressions not valid for a Followers campaign?. To summarize, I’ve tried getting promoted_account_impressions and promoted_account_follows, but I get the error that those are not valid metrics, hence the issue I posted at the link above.

Hi @JBabichJapan. I’ve just realized that the metrics I am receiving at the promoted tweet level do correspond to those in the Twitter Ads UI. The only inexplicable difference is that the campaign has 207 follows and the sole ad in the campaign has 89 follows - where does this difference come from?

There is also a difference in spend and other metrics, except for clicks - how do you explain this?

I’ve also noticed that billed_charge_local_micro, although it appears in the calculus for CPM and CPF, it’s not a valid metric when getting data for a promoted account - isn’t this a bug?

Thank you.

Please, any help here?

Hi, apologies for not following up on this thread…right now a lot of our focus is on launching the v1 analytics, if you wouldn’t mind could you attempt to repro the scenario of getting this information with the v1 endpoints and post a new thread if it still repros with v1? More docs are being launched over the next 24 hours in correspondence with the official launch of v1. For promoted account it is probably going to involve getting ‘ENGAGEMENT’ and ‘BILLING’ metric group off of the line items associated with the promoted account campaign.
