Tweets now have a new feature called “View Counts” thanks to Twitter CEO Elon Musk.
The number of times a Tweet has been viewed overall is indicated by view counts. On Twitter, everyone can see the views.
On each Tweet, users may see the view count next to the analytics indicator.
Community Tweets, Tweets from Twitter Circles, and Older Tweets, however, won’t show “View Counts.”
Replies and likes don’t tell the whole story. We’re making it easier to tell *just* how many people have seen your Tweets with the addition of view counts, shown right next to likes. Now on iOS and Android, web coming soon.https://t.co/hrlMQyXJfx

How do you determine ‘View Counts’
Tweets on Home, Search, Profiles, Tweets embedded in articles, etc. or whether you follow the person or not, every person who views it counts as a view. This includes authors who simply glance at their own Tweets.
If a Tweet is viewed more than once, several views may be recorded. For instance, viewing a Tweet on the web and on your phone would count as two views.
View counts will display on Tweets from protected accounts.
