Maybe you’re right. Maybe Jetpack’s servers ignore Twitterbot for metrics by default. But it doesn’t hurt to have it removed from the data anyways. I’m not hurting twitterbot’s ability to work, just jetpack’s ability to see it.

Or am I? I’m not familiar enough with Jetpack code to saw for sure. There’s no way for me to check what is being sent to jetpack servers. That’s troublesome for me, if only because I’d love to know how to edit the data they use to calculate my visitor analytics.
