When you @arbys or whatever on twitter where does the message go?

Does it go out as one of their tweets?

Does it appear on their page somewhere?

I don't know if anyone had twatted me back as I've no idea where to look for it.

Did you also ask about when Twitter was over capacity this morning?

The real question is why anyone would go "@arbys".

by Anonymousreply 201/31/2013

When you send something to @arbys, it can be seen and read by @arbys and anyone else following @arbys. If they do answer you, it would be shown on your @Connect twitter page.

Or they may have direct messaged you.

Try looking on YouTube for a Twitter video to teach you how to use it, hon.

You'd be surprised at the queens in the McDonald's thread defending fast food to the death.

Apparently Arby's and McD's are high cuisine for some folks.

R3, I thought recepients could only see a tweet sent to them if both recepient and sender are following each other.

You mean someone who is not following me can see a tweet I send them in their regular received tweets? I thought my tweet to them would end up in their Connect file or not at all.

I'm so hungry I could eat at ARBY'S!

Not sure, R6. I use TweetDeck and I have a separate column for my @s. I don't remember if they appear on my regular timeline or not - now that you mention it.

R1 No...that was not me.

You can mention ANY Twitter address in a Tweet just by adding their @username.

If they go to the @Connect tab at the top, then your Tweet should come up either under "interactions" or "mentions". It does NOT appear on their general feed, unless they follow you.

Some companies are very good about checking their Twitter feeds. I've gotten help from Comcast, FedEx and UPS via complaints to their Twitter feeds (complaints I posted only after exhausting other options). It's actually an effective way to get help sometimes, because not everyone has Twitter and most people are still calling or emailing customer service.

But not every company follows the comments or does anything about them (and same for Facebook).

I finally checked mine...thanks for telling me how.

I had messages asking me to call people...some over a year old...who knew?

People who taught themselves how to correctly use Twitter long ago, that's who.

I love that, R7.

Maybe some fast food would help release whatever is stuck up your ass R1/R4/R5/R10/R12.

I have a clean ass because I don't poison my body, R14, but thanks for asking.

by Anonymousreply 1502/01/2013

Apparently not, R15, you being such a bitch and all.

by Anonymousreply 1602/01/2013

Why would people use Twitter without understanding what it is first?

Mind boggling.
