Tweeting

Recommended Posts

I signed up about a year ago, but have no idea how to use it, can anyone help?   I just tried to send one to a news personality who is big into tweeting and encourages people to tweet her.  I found her list of tweets and at the side it said 'Tweet Dana Perino', I clicked on that and got a text box, typed my tweet and clicked on 'Tweet' (sorry to be repetative!).  I was then back at her list of tweets, but nothing had appeared.  Have I done something wrong or do I have to wait awhile?  I have all the passwords and name etc.

Sorry I've no idea Stallard as I've never tweeted... well apart from when I've been trying to encourage the little birds to come to our garden for the fat balls I put up :lol::oops:

I think Gary is a twit so he might know.

Oops I meant 'twitterer'... but it made me chuckle when I saw my mistake so I left it.  What is it they say 'many a true word said in jest8):lol:  guess that's me banned

You need to be careful that it's the real Dana Perino because there may well be others using his/her name. After the name you should see @ and then if it's something like danaP3rino then it's not the real one. The other thing is that his/her Twitter account may be protected and only confirmed followers may tweet. With these you may need to follow  and wait for confirmation to tweet.

How do you know if someone's the real person or a fake then?  If you tweet on someones page can they, and everyone else, then see all your other tweets everywhere else? 
I was about to join but not sure I fancy it now  ......

Thanks anyway Dizzy.   You may have something Wolfie, I have heard of the 'Follow' thing, but did't know that it affected the ability to 'Tweet'.  Maybe I have to somehow sign up to 'follow' and then try the message thing.

If you are sure that you are on the right account, just click on 'follow' you should get a reply in time, and then you can tweet.

A hash tag is used to help on search and to get phrases trending eg #LoveWarrington

Thanks Gary,  We are leaving for a week in San Antonio in a few minutes, but as soon as I get back I will do it - my computer is bolted to the desk and I only use a flip phone.  This is how bad it is  - how do I 'follow' you ???
