Daily Tweets Inaccurate

Rockstar Games 12-Oct-2010 18:49:22

Some of our tweets don't show up properly on the day they are tweeted. Additionally, the amount of followers fluctuates and at times and will sometimes attribute followers from one day, to the wrong day, only to correct itself after a forced update.

Will these issues be resolved?

The data you see, and the data we collect, is a snapshot of your statistics.

If all works, we take at least 1 snapshot of your Twitter data a day. This might be in the morning, so every change to your Twitter account that happens after that moment will be collected the next day (and thus improperly attributed to that day). This is unfortunate and resolved only by a forced update, as you stated.

Our premium accounts actually offer statistics by the hour. We take a snapshot every hour (as opposed to one a day) and show this in graph. More information about the Premium services can be found here: http://twittercounter.com/pages/premium or you can contact me at sam@twittercounter.com.

I have the same issue with tweets being misattributed to the wrong day. I have however signed up for a premium account today. Under premium service, is there a way to force update the old stats to ensure tweets are associated with the right day? If it helps, November 1 is the key day I'm tracking --- I don't really mind about the exact accuracy of the days before it.

No. Unfortunately we can not alter historic data. The Twitter API does not offer the historic data it would require for us to change this.
