Twitter Replies from the Twitverse

with 2 comments

Twitter allows to reply to people you are following by appending an “@<username>” in front of the message. But unfortunately, the person you are trying to reply to doesn’t see this reply if they, in turn, are not following you. Of course this impedes some communication , but it turned out that all you had to do was change a setting to see “All Replies” , rather “Replies from people I am following only”.

If you don’t want to be missing out people’s replies to you : 

Just log on to Twitter , Click Settings and then the Notices Tab. You can then set the replies to “all @ replies” .

Twitter Settings

I also find it wierd that you can only direct message someone who is following you. That leaves almost no chance for one to build a network via Twitter. It seems to just enhance your existing network. Twitter, I think has the potential to provide simplistic (read “unlike Facebook”) social networking, if they could only get their act together.
