Meta Tags


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

A meta tag specific to Twitter Cards that associates your site with a Twitter account using a unique Twitter user ID. This is used to attribute the content to a Twitter account and is particularly useful for analytics and tracking content distribution.

Code Examples

<meta name="twitter:site:id" content="123456789" />
A valid Twitter user ID, representing a numeric string that uniquely identifies a Twitter account.
<meta name="twitter:site:id" content="@YourTwitterHandle" />
Using your Twitter handle (@username) instead of the numeric user ID is incorrect and will not properly associate the content with your Twitter account.
<meta name="twitter:site:id" content="" />
Leaving the "twitter:site:id" value empty provides no benefit and misses the opportunity for account attribution and analytics on Twitter.


  • Finding Your Twitter User ID
    Your Twitter user ID is a string of numbers, not your username. Use Twitter's settings or third-party tools to find your user ID.
  • Consistent Attribution
    Always use the same Twitter user ID for content from your site to ensure consistent attribution and improve your site's social metrics tracking on Twitter.
