Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how you can tweet a person or account directly using the "@" symbol while using Twitter on a Microsoft Lumia 535.
Press the power button on the right hand side of the phone to bring up the lock screen
Swipe the lock screen up to access the home screen
On the home screen, find and press on the Twitter tile
It is a blue tile with a white bird on it.
If your Twitter tile is not pinned to the home screen, swipe left and find it in the applications menu
To start a tweet, press on the icon that looks like a blue circle with a paper and quill at the bottom of the screen
The "@" symbol allows you to tweet directly to an account. The tweet will still be visible to other people but it will be directed specifically to an account.
To write to Dale Winton, write the "@" symbol
To do this, you will have to press the "&123" button on the keyboard.
Press the "@" button to write it
Type the account name you are tweeting to; in this case, "dalewinton"
Press space followed by your message
Press the icon that looks like a blue circle with a bird and three lines to send the tweet
It is located at the bottom of the screen.
From the main page, swipe left until the head symbol is blue
All your tweets will be located here. The latest one can be seen at the top.
Pressing the latest tweet will open a new screen
The account name "@dalewinton" will be colored in blue. The blue color means that Twitter has acknowledged the fact that "@dalewinton" is a real account.
Press "@dalewinton" to open Dale Winton's account page
A direct tweet can be sent to any account as long as you know the account name
