‘Course Twitter doesn’t work this way any more. One part …. looking at an accounts replies … disappeared shortly after this was written. I miss that function very much.
As we went through the conversation and as I considered the various aspects of what it was about I realized I had never seen a description like the following … nor could I find one when I googled the question “how my twitter account works.”
I got some other things, good things I’m sure, but not this “thing.”
The SoCooL thing is I get to print it here in the SoCooL VLOG BLOG … I’ll undoubtedly get some more input on if I’m correct in this description, if it has value, etc. … plus, plus, plus.
There are basically three pages associated with every Twitter account.
The page the public sees, whether logged in or not, when they click on your Twitter account.
What THEY see when THEY click on that page is Your Tweets
The page YOU see when you access YOUR TWITTER ACCOUNT. What you see when you access your own account page and you are logged in is the Tweets of those that account follows. This is NOT a PAGE that the public, your followers, those you follow see. This is the page only YOU sees. ( i think – yes?) IF, HOWEVER, there is a Tweet on this page that YOU WANT your “audience” to see you simply RE-TWEET that Tweet and it becomes YOUR RETWEET and is now seen on Page One AND on the Page Two page of those who follow you.
The reply page. This is a page that is Tweets that contain @YOURACCOUNT in the tweet. These tweets show up as replies to YOU and can be seen by YOU and others by clicking on @THISTWITTERACCOUNT in the control panel on Page One or Page Two. It takes you directly to the reply page.
Interestingly enough, just adding #to the web address doesn’t seem to work manually or in a direct link like above. Mmmm …
