Can you track the number of views your tweets get?

I would like to track how many people view our tweets even if they don't become a follower, is that possible?

That is not possible. Not with any application, even though they claim to do so.

Thanks. Is there a reason why not?
Other social media sites can do it.

Because you can't install any third party software on Twitter. Tracking how many people see your tweet would require some sort of tracking on Twitter.com and on each separate Twitter client available.

What you could show is the reach, or the number of users that your tweet is shown to. Based on your followers, and the followers of people who retweet or @mention you, you can come to an estimate of people who's timeline contains your tweets. This is, however, by no means an accurate statistic.
