A quick tip on starting a tweet with an @:

If you begin a tweet with an @, only people who follow both you AND the account you’re mentioning will be able to see it in their feed.


If you want your tweet to be seen by everyone that follows your account, just make sure that you include something prior to the @. This can be anything from an intro word such as ‘Hey @account’, or if you’re short on space, a simple . Example:

Simple, no?

Just remember: If you want everyone to see your tweet, make sure to include something prior to the @!

Also, thank you to the Game Developers of Wellington (@GameDevsofWelly) for allowing me to use their account in this example.
