Total Video Views lower than Video Views 100%


I’m seeing some weird cases where my promoted_video_total_views is substantially lower than the promoted_video_views_100 metric for a 24 hour timespan, based on my understanding of these metrics, this should never be possible. Is this a measurement error on twitter’s side?

Example stats call:,promoted_video_views_100&granularity=DAY

returns the following:

  "data_type": "stats",
  "data": [
      "start_time": "2016-04-07T04:00:00Z",
      "promoted_video_views_100": [
      "promoted_video_total_views": [
      "end_time": "2016-04-09T04:00:00Z",
      "id": "4pb33",
      "granularity": "DAY"

promoted_video_views_100 returns incorrect values from the API

Hi @dan_royo, take a look here:

Video	promoted_video_total_views	Total non-unique views for a promoted video where at least 3 seconds was viewed.		
Video	promoted_video_views_100	Total number of views where 100% of the video was viewed.


Hey hector,

Thanks for the reply, but those definitions are exactly the problem. How can I have more users viewing 100% of a video than I have users viewing at least 3 seconds of a video?


Ops! @dan_royo,

I’ve read it in the opposite way… hahaha

Sorry! I’ll wait as you to the correct answer!!
