Twitter Interest Category List

When I find myself planning a new Twitter campaign, I often look online for a list of Twitter's target interests that I may want to use. I am often left wanting as I cannot find a comprehensive list outside of creating a campaign. To me, this isn't ideal. I like to brainstorm and write out my campaigns on paper or in excel before I create a new campaign in the engine.

It would be helpful to have a quick reference to Twitter's interests as I brainstorm my campaign buildout. So, here it is. A list Twitter's interest categories and sub-interests.

Best Practices

  • Twitter recommends that you do not have more than two interest categories per campaign or more than 10 sub-interests in one campaign. Interests are broken down into interest categories and sub-interests. Some interest categories have up to 25 sub-interests. When you select an interest category and run a campaign with many sub-interests, check it frequently and refine your sub-interest to best performers.
  • When choosing more than one interest to target, choose interests that are related. For example, if you are advertising for a golf shop, you can target golf and may include men's tops or men's pants.
