Mobile Metrics: Twitter Alone vs Twitter + CoPromote

We can tell you how cross-promotion is the best way to reach new followers. We can talk about “the power of many” until the internet actually breaks. Or, we can let the data speak for itself.

Today, Twitter announced an update that lets you track engagements on their iOS app. The data’s message couldn’t be clearer: Dedicated sharing scales reach!

Now, when you boost a Tweet through CoPromote, you can easily compare the improvement between Tweeting on your own versus boosting through CoPromote’s community of content creators dedicated to sharing.

Don’t take our word for it. Boost a tweet and see for yourself.

Thanks, Twitter!
