Is the site yours or do you manage it? Have you pushed activity through Twitter during this period or do you know anyone who might have?


Go to the Source/Medium report and filter the table for t.co / referral - or if you utm track Twitter traffic, use either the source or medium value. Then apply a secondary dimension of Full Referrer. Do the Full Referrer values say anything about the traffic?


Replace Full Referrer with Landing Page. Do the Landing Page values say anything about the traffic?
