Hi

Have you enabled device notications through your cel phone? Using the twitter command 'ON' turns all device notifications on.

I have the same problem.

If the feed is private, sending ON does not turn them on. You have to create a web account to turn on a Private account. Seems to defeat the purpose.

    Twitter Over Capacity Error


    e2c5f0b.png

    Have you been seeing the Twitter Is Over Capacity screen alot recently?
    Have you wondered what the Twitter Over Capacity error means?

    Generally you will see the Twitter Whale when either trying to login to Twitter or to tweet via web using an auto-logged-in browser instance.

    The Twitter Is Over Capacity screen generally means that Twitter's network of computers is not able to respond to your request. This could be due to:

    • A Denial of Service (DOS) attack against Twitter. This means that so many computers have been set to repeatedly access twitter as fast as they can, that the Twitter network computers can simply not keep up to the volume of demand.
    • System Maintenance. Infrastructure improvement can warrant temporarily disabling services for network administration.
    You can review Twitter's status at the Twitter Status Page.

    Just because you cannot login to Twitter, or post from their webpage, does not mean you cannot still use google to search tweets for you. Nor does it mean you cannot still post new tweets and twitter status updates via sms messaging or via API for example.

    I hope that helps.

    Don't remember my user name


    If you cannot remember your twitter username, you can also use the email address you registered with in order to sign in to twitter. Once signed in you can visit your profile page to see what your username is.

    How do you tweet


    There are two ways to tweet people directly, 'private' and 'private-plus-friends':

    1. Log in to Twitter via the Twitter Home Page, or via API. You can also update Twitter via Facebook and several other applications that use the Twitter API.
    2. Enter your message in the box with the label "What are you doing?" Keep in mind that your tweet can be no longer than 140 characters at the most. This limitation exists because Twitter uses the SMS network to send notifications via cell phone to those who desire it.
    You may receive error messages with the whale picture, but this is generally uncommon.

    I hope that helps.

    How to text on twitter


    Dear Sir,

    plz folow this step to solve your problem,


    I'm assuming you have unlimited texting or some sort of texting plan.

    1. Log in to Twitter
    2. In the upper right hand navigation bar, click Settings
    3. Click the third settings tab, Devices
    4. Add your phone number number, with country code first (+1 is the US country code; a US phone number would look like this: +14153368687 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting +14153368687 end_of_the_skype_highlighting)
    5. Wait for the verification code to pop up
    6. Text the verification code to Twitter using the number given in the devices page. US residents should always see 40404- if you see another number, you might've added the number in the wrong format.

    Send text message updates to Twitter using these numbers:

    * US: 40404
    * Canada: 21212
    * UK, Vodafone subscribers only: 86444
    * Germany: +49 17 6888 50505
    * Sweden: +46 737 494222 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting +46 737 494222 end_of_the_skype_highlighting
    * India: 5566511 (note: this short code is still in beta, so if you can't use it, try our international number below.)
    * All other countries: +44 762 4801423 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting +44 762 4801423 end_of_the_skype_highlighting Source(s): http://help.twitter.com/forums/59008/ent… Thanks For Your Time,
