Social media is known and loved for its quick way of communicating an individual’s thoughts, opinions, and life happenings through messaging, commenting, liking, and subscribing.
Online platforms are helpful for people not just personally but professionally too. Even if we do not agree, the fact that social media has become a great part of our existence cannot be denied.
Media channels like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter (now X), YouTube, WhatsApp, and TikTok are a few names that are known and used by most people around the globe. These channels have changed the dynamics of communication entirely.
One of the concerns and curiosities that are raised by people around the digital world is the concern of privacy. You, yourself once in your life might have asked who has viewed your profile. Well, social media is private for people who want privacy and open to those who like everything to be shared.
The users of Twitter also ask this often, Who is visiting their profile, and who is not? While it is impossible to answer this question, there are a few ways that can give you a rough idea of the truth.
Let’s begin the article with a general discussion for a clearer understanding to understand who viewed your Twitter. So, read the article till the very end.
Social Media and Stalking
Social media has surely made communication easy, but it has also raised a few concerns like stalking. Predators stalk their prey on social media to send unwanted messages to disturb the mental wellness of the other person.
Though some of the time people also stalk harmlessly like when they stalk their crush or an acquaintance without them knowing. However, things can turn really bad if the harmlessness goes away.
Twitter, like other social media platforms, has got its share of stalkers, both harmful and harmless. However, posting with precaution is always better than mindless posting.
Check out the following table to learn everything you have to learn about the sensible use of social media items of privacy.
|Safety Tips||What to do?|
|Do Not Share The Location||Sharing your location on social media can be seriously harmful as it can lead your stalker to your place.|
|Secure Password||A strong and secure password is difficult to figure out. Also, two-factor authentication turns out really helpful. Make sure that you do not put general information as your password.|
|Careful Acceptance||It is charming to get multiple friend requests in a day but before accepting a friend request see if you know that person. Otherwise, be extra cautious before accepting a stranger’s request.|
|Reporting||In case someone is harassing you by harmful stalking, know that there is cybersecurity that is ready to help you out.|
Social Media and Privacy
Social media and privacy are two ends of a rope that are joined together and work hand in hand.
The information that one chooses to upload on social can be very concerning. Sharing private images or videos, sharing locations, or any information that can lead to fraud or anything can be extremely harmful.
I am no one to tell you what to do, if you wish to keep your things public, it is your call to make. However, I can guide you a bit on safety and privacy. Be safe than sorry, that is all that I have to say.
Also, be careful before using third-party applications or any link that needs clicking. Hackers hack profiles that easily. Significant information must be dealt with with caution in all cases.
Social media is a casual platform of communication yet the tension it brings with the privacy of the people is real. Do you remember Mark Zuckerberg and his court hearing? Yes, the matter is that serious. The Facebook owner even had to apologize to the people for the breach of trust.

Twitter and Engagements
Engagements are really important when it comes to social media, especially when you are a business.
In fact, all the postings that are done on any of the online channels are done for the sole purpose of more engagements. Engagements are anything that is done with a certain posted content. It can be liking a post, commenting on it, or else sharing it with the rest of the people.
The main source of engagement on Twitter is Tweets. People interact with those Tweets by commenting, liking, or Retweeting. The more Retweets, comments, and likes are there on your Tweet, the more likely you get recognition on Twitter, and the more your profile is viewed.
How to tell who viewed my Twitter?
There is no one way to tell who viewed your profile. Through engagements, you can tell who was there but without engagements, you know nothing.
If you are waiting for a name to prompt on your profile or in the notification, forget about it, a sit is never going to happen. Twitter does not facilitate its use by telling who viewed the profile like LinkedIn does, rather the engagements can give an idea of the interactive IDs.
There are third-party applications that claim to give exact details of the accounts that visited your account. However, I never recommend using third-party applications when it comes to privacy.
