Why can I not tweet

M as in Mancy

I've tried on mobile and desktop, is there something wrong with that specific phrase? I know you can include that phrase in other tweets and it will work, but that phrase by itself (without spaces or other alterations) is untweetable.

    'M<space>' must correspond to a command. Like 'd<space>@<user>' triggers a direct message. Feb 11, 2015 at 22:41

On Twitter,

M [username] + message


D [username] + message

sends that person a Direct Message that goes to their device, and saves in their web archive.


d krissy want to pick a Jamba Juice for me while you're there?


m krissy wanna pick up a Jamba Juice for me while you're there?

performs the same action. So that's why your phrase can't be tweeted.
