Common Mistake Makes Tweets Invisible
About a year ago, Twitter changed their reply feature so that you couldn’t see conversations going on between two people- unless you were following BOTH of those people.
Here is how it works-
Say I am speaking to @CharlesHGreen and I say-
@CharlesHGreen I really enjoyed The Trusted Advisor, glad to finally meet you on Twitter.
ONLY the people that follow me (@adriandayton) and Charles (@CharlesHGreen) will be able to see the message because I started the message with his name.
If I want EVERYBODY to see it, there is a very simple solution:
Simply place a “.” in front of the message. Â So If I want to tell Charles I enjoyed his book, and I want everyone else to see the message I write:
.@CharlesHGreen I really enjoyed The Trusted Advisor, glad to finally meet you on Twitter.
This way ALL of my followers see the message. Â Starting with the period will keep your post from being invisible. Â Make sense?
Any other questions? Â Feel free to ask questions in the comments below, or shoot me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
