Why do my tweets not show?

Hey y'all. :)

I've been wondering for a while why my tweets don't show on the page I've tweeted to so I've decided to ask. :)

For example, today I wanted to tweet to the BBC. I went to the BBC's Twitter page and clicked on 'Tweet to BBC' and composed and tweeted my tweet. My tweet doesn't show on their page after I click refresh.

There are many company's I have tweeted to and the same happens. It never shows my tweet on their page.

I thought that if I tweeted my tweet would show up publicly on the company's page. However I admit that I don't know much about Twitter so I may be doing something wrong.. or maybe Twitter just doesn't work like I thought it did.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks. :)

  1. never used twitter

    but first thought would be perhaps they screen the tweets

    to make sure nothing offensive appears on their site?

    but no doubt a twitter user will come along and give you a better answer than me
  2. Hi @mcnumpty23 and thanks for your input. :)

    Originally I thought that a tweet might have to be approved by a moderator or someone else before it was posted. However days later my tweets still weren't visible.

    Yeah... hopefully a lil birdie will be along soon to help. :)

    Cheers. ;)
  3. Hi there! I'm our Social Media expert, and this week I'm running an AMA, and I think I can help explain.

    When you say "I went to the BBC's Twitter page and clicked on 'Tweet to BBC' and composed and tweeted my tweet." - do you mean a page on the BBC's site or their twitter profile? Let me know over here: http://www.tomsguide.com/forum/id-3491906/expert-social-media-henry-casey.html I may be a yank, but I think I can help!

    Thanks for your reply! While some social media sites, such as Facebook, allow you to post to someone else's page, Twitter replies never appear on the other person's profile. Your tweet may appear there if they decide to retweet it or quote-tweet it, but not otherwise.

    The only way to see the messages sent to a twitter account is use Twitter's advanced search https://twitter.com/search-advanced and type that account into the "To these accounts" field and click search. Or, you could use a third-party app, such as TweetBot on iOS, and visit that person's profile, tap Tweets and then tap Mentions.

    Hope that clears this up!
