Is there a free way to track Twitter follower growth over time!

. 4 min read

How do you track Twitter followers over time?

Learning your Twitter follower growth over time can be difficult. This is because there’s no provision on Twitter to gain such information on your Twitter account.

Twitter has reached 340 million active users so far, making it a platform where Twitter users manage thousands of followers every day.

Twitter analytics only provides you data on overall follower gain/loss on a monthly basis. But, you can’t learn how your followers are changing on an everyday basis.

This is not helpful if you want to understand which of your tweets are bringing you more followers and which tweets are losing your followers.

Circleboom Twitter

You can track your follower and friend growth on Twitter with many other unique features on Circleboom.

Why should you Track your Twitter Follower Growth?

Tracking your daily Twitter follower growth can help you know:

  • Tweet frequencies that work best for your profile by learning the pattern.

The above reasons are compelling enough for any Twitter user to track their follower growth and analyze their follower numbers.
