Use the Tweet Editor to mention, reply and Direct Message (DM) users from any of your authenticated accounts from within Audiense.
- A Tweet is any message containing up to 140 characters.
- A mention is any Tweet that contains an @username in the body of the text but not at the start of the Tweet.
- A reply is any Tweet that starts with an @username.
- A Direct Message is a private message sent to a follower and which does not appear in your timeline.
Direct Message – Twitter limits
- Maximum DMs per day – Please read DM Campaigns – Best Practices and follow our recommendations, most of which are valid both for DM campaigns and individual DMs.
- Maximum 10 000 characters per message.
Remember that Rule Builder also allows you to automatically mention and/or send a DM to those users who satisfy predetermined criteria.
