When sending a direct message to someone, better do it this way -
d username <the message>
A couple of times it had happened to me that sending the dm to someone went as a reply to them openly in the timeline. So the option of sending it as said above is the best.

How do you tweet on someones profile


Twitter is slightly different to Facebook and works on a system of timelines. Unlike Facebook were you can freely post on someone's profile, on Twitter to do this you must ask them to ReTweet your tweet. However, you can give direct messages to or send tweets towards them by using the @username replacing the word username with the person whom you wan't to talk to.

How do you tweet someone privately?


Sending a private or direct message on twitter is fairly simple. Log in to your account and click messages at the top of the screen. This will take you to the messages section of your account.

Once you're viewing the messages section, click the "New Message" button located toward the top of the screen. A small window will appear. Enter the recipient of your message in the first input and your full message text in the second, click send.

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.
