Our article was posted on a twitter with a large following and inside the Realtime overview we were getting 5 pageviews per user.

Here is a screenshot I took:

enter image description here

And this happened all day fluctuating between 3x to 5x the amount of pageviews for that article compared to users

First I thought it was a viewbot trying to exaggerate the views. but today, I have looked at the final analytics for that page from yesterday and it shows around 2100 pageviews from 2000 users. So that article now has a 1.13 pageviews per user which seems a more normal value.

So why is there such a big discrepancy between the Realtime and the final analytics? Is this a normal thing that happens?
