btw if I follow you on twitter and you send me a direct message it will go right to my phone!
To send me, or anyone a direct message (that only they will see) start your message with a lower-case "d" followed by the recipients name.
Like this: d username Your message.
Remember "they" need to follow you for this to work.

To send "anyone" a message on twitter, format like this @username Your message.
Make sure there is no space between the @ and the username.
Keep in mind that anyone can view this message if they want - it's not private.

It's best to click on the reply button to send a message or cut-and-paste to spell the username correctly.
