Recently, a Twitter designer shared mock-ups of how this change would look in-stream.
YouTube launched Data Stories in October. Now, they’ve released some very exciting updates to help creators and brands better understand their channel performance data.
Data Stories is now experimenting with a ‘weekly recap’ to highlight the top metrics from Live, Shorts, normal content and posts. It would display how many viewers, the percentage of returning traffic, key drivers of traffic and weekly revenue, among others.
