Intro

Twitter Counter is an analytics service for Twitter. It provides statistics of Twitter usage and also offers a variety of widgets and buttons that people can use to show recent Twitter visitors and number of followers. Use Domo's Twitter Counter connector to show the number of followers by date for a given username. To learn more about the Twitter Counter API, visit their page (https://twittercounter.com/pages/api).

You connect to your Twitter Counter account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Twitter Counter connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.
