Tweet Count for a user profile



Every twitter user profile page (For example,, shows tweet count. ( please see the screenshot attached).
I like to understand how exactly these count is calculated and how accurate it is.
I have seen the count doesn’t match with actual tweets. hence I like to have a bit deep understanding on
how the that count is calculated?
What is the algorithm for showing the tweet count for the user profile?

How do I make sure the delta between actual tweets and the count for the user profile?

  1. When someone “Reports the tweet/I don’t like the tweet”, the count reflect those changes?


We are not able to specify the parameters you’re asking for information on.

If you see a discrepancy between the API and the web or mobile apps, it may also be related to eventual consistency between data centres.
