Hello,
Twitter limit's how many people you can follow at a certain time, to help limit spam accounts. You may be able to contact Twitter Support or wait a day or two and see if it changes.

Twitter Support: http://help.twitter.com/requests/portal/new
-You will have to login with your Twitter username and password, then you might have to open the url again.

Hope this helps!

Icant sign in it wont allow my email addresseven doh its right


Hi, if you are sure that it's correct, then try to reset the password, that's the best method to bypass it, sometimes when the twitter server can't hold all the users to access each accounts, in that case you'll see a message telling about the traffic or the capacity....

Open twitter.com, click "Sign In" and again click "Forgot?" on the right of the password box (click here)..

Let me know if you need further help. It would be appreciated if you can let me know the error message/s shown during the login attempts.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

If someone tweets, how do u reply to that particulat tweet?


The largest pic size for twitter is 700k, and they support JPG, GIF, and PNG formats. The photo will be reduced to 78 pixels square for your main page, and 48 pixels square for use in the timeline.

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

  1. Type "d USERNAME" before your tweet to send a direct message to a particular user. Only that user will see the message.
  2. Put "@USERNAME" at the beginning of your tweet to send a reply to a particular user. That user, your followers and that user's followers will all be able to see the tweet, but it won't appear on the public timeline.
You may receive error messages with the whale picture, but this is generally uncommon.

I hope that helps.

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.

May i ask about twitter if i reply someone on his tweets did he read or received my message even though he is not following me.?help me on this tnx


Provided you don't get stuck with the Twitter Is Over Capacity Whale that I've been seeing lately, there are two ways to reply/tweet to people directly, 'private' and 'private-plus-friends':

  1. Type "d USERNAME" before your tweet to send a direct message to a particular user. Only that user will see the message.
  2. Put "@USERNAME" at the beginning of your tweet to send a reply to a particular user. That user, your followers and that user's followers will all be able to see the tweet, but it won't appear on the public timeline.
When you send that message with D or @, then the user will get our message even if you are not being followed.

I hope that helps.
