Learn how to use the twitter:creator:id meta tag to improve your site.

Specifies the Twitter user ID of the content creator. This can help attribute the content more directly to the creator’s Twitter account in Tweets sharing the page.

Code Examples

<meta name="twitter:creator:id" content="123456789" />
Correct use of a numeric Twitter user ID to indicate the creator of the content.
<meta name="twitter:creator:id" content="@username" />
Incorrect use by including "@" and the username instead of the numeric user ID.
<meta name="twitter:creator:id" content="username" />
Another incorrect usage by providing the Twitter username without the "@", still failing to use the numeric ID.
<meta name="twitter:creator:id" content="" />
An empty value does not provide any linkage or credit to the content creator’s Twitter account, missing the opportunity for proper attribution.


  • Finding Your User ID
    You can find your Twitter user ID by using various online tools or through Twitter’s settings in the "Account" section, as it’s different from your username.
  • Use Without "@"
    Only use the numeric user ID, not the Twitter handle. Including "@" or the username itself will not properly link to the creator’s Twitter profile.
