Some Twitter users are beginning to see views for their own tweets. Musk announced that the feature would be available for all tweets on December 1st. He repeated this promise a week later, adding that it would be “in a few more weeks.”
Folks over at The Verge have noticed a counter that appears when you click on your posts. Although a few users on Twitter have reported receiving the feature, it does not appear to be available to everyone, since many are still not able to see it.
Here is what it looks like.
This new addition will only be meaningful if it lets you see view counts for other people’s tweets as well. But we should still have the option to hide this counter since not everyone would want their views to be public.
It is unclear if Musk meant for users to see the number of views that other people’s tweets get. Musk’s comment about the feature being “just as videos”, whose views are public for all users makes it appear that you should be able to see how many views people’s tweets have been getting.
Twitter is yet to respond to a request to comment and Musk has not tweeted anything about it either.
