X has developed the following methodology for counting AMARS, following DSA's guidelines:
all natural and legal persons in the EU who upload content to X or are exposed to X content through X's application interface
inclusive non-authenticated users (i.e. users without an account or logged-out users, assuming they are able to engage with the service e.g. by reading or listening to or clicking on content)
a single user accessing through multiple interfaces should be counted only once
a single user accessing with multiple accounts should be counted only once
bots or scrapers are excluded
Including non-authenticated users
X makes part of its content accessible to non-authenticated users. Persons without a X account, or logged-out X users, are able to access content on X.com without being required to log in. That is the reason why in the context of counting AMARS, X is presenting the specific average active recipients of the service represented by logged out guest users.
For purposes of consistency with our practices under the GDPR, we will be basing the geographic location of our AMARS on the IP address associated with the recipient at the moment the recipient accesses X.
