How the hell did a Twitter show do better numbers than Dynamite?
And it's currently at 3.7 million views, so it's running laps around Raw and Smackdown too.

But Twitter view counts have become meaningless bullshyt so Space Karen can con companies into spending money on ads. All that is needed to count as a video view on Twitter is for half the video to be on your screen for two seconds. Don't believe me? Well here's Twitter's own documents explaining it.

They pinned it to the top of their Twitter feed so basically anyone who clicks on WWE's profile and stays there for two seconds is going to measure as a view.


What metric is used for the View count?

The main X video view metric is triggered when a user watches a video for at least 2 seconds and sees at least 50% of the video player in-view. This applies to View metrics for both uploaded videos and live broadcasts.

So the numbers are cooked?
They pretty much always are if they are coming direct from the company that has an incentive for the numbers to be higher. That's why all these streamers sign up with Nielsen or someone else in that industry when they start doing ads because the companies buying the ad time need a third party they can trust to provide accurate numbers.

YouTube is really the only social media site that provides front end view counts that are at least reasonable. On there it has to be viewer initiated and they have to watch for at least 30 seconds. Facebook, IG, TikTok, etc. are roughly the same as Twitter for their video view count metrics.
