Create a Twitter Campaign

The following document defines the process for creating a Twitter campaign within Kochava.


Data Needed Before Beginning Process:

  • Twitter Ads account.
  • App Bundle ID (i.e Package Name).


Use Cases for Twitter Campaign:

  • An app marketing campaign needs to be created for Twitter network.


NOTE: The Twitter setup process for iOS and Android is similar and therefore this document will cover the setup for both operating systems, with specific differences noted.

NOTE: Twitter is one of Kochava’s network partners which claims its own installs, this type of network is known as a SAN (Self Attributing Network). Twitter will always claim its own installs, with the exception of mobile web inventory or any inventory that does not have access to a device ID. This means that conversions claimed by Twitter may subsequently be attributed by Kochava to other networks. It is therefore expected for Kochava to show fewer installs than are shown in the Twitter system. It also means that Kochava does not impose the lookback window setup within Kochava on install claims, so the effective lookback window for post-impression and post-click installs will be the settings configured within the Twitter UI.
