Twitter following





Tony The Tiger
When I follow someone on twitter do I see all their tweets in my homepage or do I only see those not directed at someone else. I am just noticing that nothing seems to start with an @. Does this mean that I can actually follow all those people who make tons of tweets directly to other people without having my inbox blow up?

Hi, Tony the Tiger! Yes, when you follow someone on Twitter, the tweets that you see on your homepage are only those that do not start with a mention (those with the "@" symbol). However, if you also happen to follow the users being mentioned at the start of the tweet, you will additionally see these on your timeline.

I'm not sure what you are referring to when you said "inbox," but if you mean direct messages, you don't have to worry about it being blown up as it won't be filled with messages that are not for you. Smile

The tweets start with @ is a reply.                       
                                              
If someone use @ to start a reply, it can only be seen by those who mentioned by @ and who is follwing both the author and the one mentioned by the first @ .
                                                 
If you following who makes tons of tweets , just make sure that most of his tweets are reply and you didn't follow the ones he/she often replied to.
                                           
If you still not understand, just take a try to have an experiment.
