We have already established that Twitter is a two-way communication Social Media Network.

Now you want to start tap into the power of utilizing the two-way communications options Twitter allows you to use.

The Twitter @ replies is one of the best way to start two-way communications on Twitter.

When you send an @ replies this message will go directly to the @ reply box of the user you sent it too. But the real power of the @ replies is that all your followers will see this message.

You can also send an @ replies to peeps that don’t follow you.

Of course with these kind of powerful option with @ replies it is a chance for abusing this.

Some simple @ replies rules;

Don’t use @ replies to spam people

If you send me tweets like @username please check out this link – this will usually turn me off. And I will then check more of your tweets out and see if this is a pattern, if so I will unfollow and block you. Note: @ replies from people that are blocked will NOT show up in your timeline. So if someone spams you then;
a) report them to the Twitter @spam team
b) unfollow them
c) block them

Make @ replies beneficial for all your followers

Remember that when you the @ replies it not only goes to the user you directed the @ reply too, but to all of your followers. Therefore put some thoughts into it, and make sure that everyone in some way can understand it.

Add power to @ replies

Send @ replies to a group of your followers. #followfriday is an excellent example of how to send @ replies to a group. Your tweets can look something like this:

#followfriday I endorse @username1, @username2, @username3

This tweet will go directly to the @ replies box of the user I have mentioned, plus to all my followers.

Now the real power starts kick in when @username1 start retweet this tweet to all his/hers followers, and @username2 and @username3 start doing the same.
