There are two ways to do this. A public "mention" and a "direct message". To tweet to them publicly, you type @scifri Here is my question or comment for you.

I think you are thinking about it differently. These companies rely on your promotion. So when the host says every week tweet your questions and comments to us. They are asking for you to 1) Follow them / Place them a list - They want to know that you are looking at their timeline and that your followers see that you are following the company 2) ...

Yeah, person A's Twitter replies to person B (tweets that begin with B's @username) are only visible in the Twitter stream of those followers of A who also follow B. I think this feature is fairly non-obvious, especially for new users. To my knowledge, the easiest way to see also the "@ replies" (without following the other user) is to go to the user's ...

All you have to do is to start your tweet with the username of someone that you want to send a direct message to with an @ in front. For example to send to Science Friday a question you can tweet something like this: @scifri What is the fastest way to cool a beer? This tweet will appear in scifri's timeline but not in the timeline of your followers ...

This is currently not an option. Besides the fact that Twitter has changed over time and things like retweets are handled differently now then they were in the past, it would be nearly impossible to accurately state if a tweet was "original".

You can you this API call to get your own (assuming you aren't behind a protected account): https://api.twitter.com/1/favorites.json?id=<yourTwitterName>&page=<pageNumber> Only 200 tweets appear at a time so you'll have to keep getting the pages updated. You cannot separate the response into users that sent the tweets, but you could store ...

If your account isn't set to private, but it's doing that, you'd be best contacting Twitter directly about it. You can open a support ticket here. If you've only recently changed it to private, it might be one of two things, potentially: Your account hasn't finished updating and syncing between servers yet. Only new Tweets will be unprotected. (I don't ...

If you are following someone on Twitter and they tweet something you want to share with the people following you, you retweet. This reposts the tweet onto your timeline and makes it possible for your followers (who may not be following the original tweeter) to see the tweet. If you are following someone on Twitter, they tweet something and you reply to ...

As I answered in the question "Is there a Wordpress plugin that will tweet when a scheduled post is posted?", if you use FeedBurner to manage your blog's RSS feed, you can set it up to post to Twitter automatically. It even offers a bunch of options about the format of the tweet. If you use FeedBurner to manage the RSS of your blog, you can go to the ...
