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.

    My goodness, this solution seems to be giving me trouble today. You might think Fixya was having the problem, not just the Twitter servers.

    __________

    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 to send tweet


You can find the step-by-step instructions on the twitter help website. Basically, you just need to include "@username" in your tweet to send a tweet to someone.

If they are following you, you can also send a direct message which is private.

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.

Yeah hi my question is do people see my twitters i mean is it in public for everyone too see what i twitter to someone?


If you have followers and you post a tweet then your followers are able to view the tweet in their timeline. IF one of your followers retweets your tweet then their followers can also view it and so on.

The only private tweets are direct messages which you can send to anyone following you.

Hope that helps!

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.

Is it possible to tweet directly from my facebook account?


Download 'social Tweet'.
For some reverse Facebook and Twitter action, Social Tweet enables you to tweet from your Facebook profile. This app works well for those social media users that prefer to remain on Facebook as the center of their social networking activity hub, and operate other social media sites and services accordingly. Social Tweet will update both your Facebook and your Twitter status, while also providing a way to selectively post tweets as your Facebook status updates
