    Hello

    I got 20-40k twitter impressions daily for past 5 days but today when I tweeted with my picture and link, it is only showing 175 as impressions?

    Anybody having this problem today?

    No issue on my end.

    Where did you get most of those daily 20-40k impressions from?
    From your followers or Twitter search? You can be ghosted.

    Check in Twitter search, if your tweets turn up for the query: "from:yourusername" without the quotation marks, if they don't show up under the Live tab, you're ghosted.

    Hey mate, thanks for you reply.

    I just did what you told me to do and my username along with latest tweet I did is showing up fine under "Live" tab.

    That's interesting then and good news at the same time.

    I should have known though, because when your tweets are getting ghosted and until they're ghosted (24 hrs in most cases), when you check your analytics, the stats don't show up in that period. And you were able to tell that you got only 175 impressions, hence the tweets aren't ghosted. :) But maybe they were, you just didn't notice.

    Anyway, something is definitely off, if your tweets aren't or weren't ghosted and you haven't lost almost all your followers.
    It can't even be, that the content is getting old, because even in that case, you should get the impressions as usual, just not that many interaction (clicks, RTs, likes).

    Answered your pm.

    Hey mate. So twitter ghosts posts up to 24 hours and then not ghost them anymore? Never knew about this.

    The thing is my likes & re-tweets from legit users are still around same. It's just the impression and interaction # on my twitter analytics are freaking low as hell, like incredibly low that it doesn't even make sense.

    What should I do if my tweets get ghosted? Just forget about getting organic impressions?

    even if a tweet shows up there, it still doesn't mean it's not ghosted.
    my tweet shows up that way, but it's nowhere to be found when searching by my words.

    Well, if your tweets can be found under the Live tab when searching for "from:username" string, i'm pretty sure, that the account isn't ghosted. It's more like a defect of the search, if you can't find your tweets. Try searching by hashtag.
    Another way to find out if your tweets are ghosted or not, if you go to Twitter analytics (https://analytics.twitter.com/user/yourtwitterusername/tweets) and check your stats. If your tweets turn up under the "Tweets" tab, they can be found in the search for sure, if you don't see your tweets there, you're ghosted. The tweets can reappear there and in the search after 24 hours, if you were hit with a temporary ghosting only and disappear again, if you violate the TOS.

    i figured it out after 2 days! twitter randomly ghosts my tweets because my account is 'too young'. the ghosting is not just 24 hours, more like permanent ghosting. my 3 months old batch do not have a problem, but the batch created in May (about 1.5 month old) are all ghosted, interestingly the 2nd tweet. (i call it 'random' since the 1st tweets worked.)
