What do static new follower counts mean?

Posted by Sharon Kostal — 8th of March 2014, 14:31 PM

When I see a static number recorded for new followers each day on accounts I am monitoring, does that represent purchased followers? Or what are static follower counts for days/weeks attributable to?

Hi Sharon,

Thanks for reaching out! This number represents the number of followers an account has gained on a specific day. This number can be static because often it happens that accounts gain the same number of followers every day.

However, if the accounts you've been moniroring are free accounts it could be that this is an estimation. Here at Twitter Counter we track over 82 million Twitter accounts, as you can imagine this requires a lot of resources. To keep everything to a minimum we only track a 'normal' account every now and then, if we miss a couple of days of data we try to calculate it as accurate as possible. Pro Stats accounts get tracked every hour, so they are a lot more accurate. Besides that we're use caching, this means that you may see data that is up to 24 hours old.
