How to connect Twitter Ads to Databox


How to connect Twitter Ads to Databox

To connect a Twitter Ads Account in Databox, go to  Data Manager > + New connection. Type Twitter Ads in the search bar and click on the green Connect button. 

This will open the  Authorization window, which is where you will be prompted to enter your Twitter Ads login credentials and authorize the Databox app. 

How much historical data is synced when you first connect Twitter Ads to Databox?

When you connect a new Twitter Ads Data Source in Databox, 24 months worth of historical data is initially synced. 

Certain Metrics may have more or less historical data available. For more information about the amount of historical data available for a specific Metric, please contact our Support Team at

Pro Tip: Once your Twitter Ads Data Source is connected and actively syncing data, we store the data that's collected in our own database. This allows us to accumulate more data over time as more data syncs are made so that you can report on more historical Twitter Ads data in your Databox reports. Learn more here

What time zone does Twitter Ads data sync in? 

Twitter Ads data is synced in UTC. 

How to access pre-built Twitter Ads Templates

 Navigate to Databoards > Public Templates
 In the Data Source drop-down list, select Twitter Ads
 To view a preview of the Template populated with dummy data, click Preview
 To pull the Template into your Account and re-populate it with your own Twitter Ads data, click Use Template
 Select the appropriate Twitter Ads Data Source from the drop-down list to complete the process. The Databoard will be re-populated with data from the selected Twitter Ads Account and can be found the  Databoards page
Pro Tip: Once the Databoard is available on the Databoards page, it is completely disconnected from the public Template. Therefore, you can further customize this Databoard to meet your specific needs using the Designer.
