Twitter has reached 1.3 billion accounts so far making it a platform where Twitter users manage thousands of followers every day. 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 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.

Why should you Track your Twitter Follower Growth?

Tracking your daily Twitter follower growth can help you know:

  • How many followers you’re gaining and losing every day.
  • Which of your tweets or tweet types help you increase your followers.
  • Are there any particular days when you gain/lose more followers.
  • 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.
