I think I just joined but computer fighting me. I just got home so I'll let the hours pass and maybe it will up date.
Is there going to be a thread for us to follow here?

Thanks so much for that Dixiecup. That helped me find it and save the search. My next question is when you say "Be aware that you HAVE TO FOLLOW in order to win any prizes"...Am I following now that I have saved the search? Ugh! I hate feeling this dumb.

I thought there would be something in their post to us for us to click on.

The administraters here should be able to tell us everything because they have a twitter account set up for this site, themselves. Maybe they would be so kind as to put exactly what we should do in the announcement section, today.

I am worried that either my #webkinzday posts aren't getting through or that there is a terrible time lag from when I post them. Posted one 13 minutes ago and it still hasn't shown up in the #webkinzday search!

#WEBKINZDAY is a topic not a person - so enter #webkinzday (with the # sign) into the SEARCH field and you will get there.

I found this all on a tweeting for dummies website:

One of Twitter’s more powerful conversational features is @replies. @replies is a tweet that, although public and visible to all Twitter users, is directed specifically to one Twitter user.
Twitter continued its evolution by changing how @replies are collected by making the @replies link into an @username link that tracks all mentions. Even though the page is now considered the Mentions page, most Twitterers still call them @replies.

To reply to a tweet, hover your cursor over the tweet that you want to respond to and then click the Arrow that appears. The user’s Twitter handle appears in the “What are you doing?” window, and the words “What are you doing?” change to “Reply to” followed by the username of the person you’re replying to, and the Update button becomes a Reply button.

Twitter then associates your reply with the original tweet in the Twitter. The person can see what tweet prompted your reply by clicking the In Reply To link at the bottom of your tweet to him.




Here are some tips on how to make the most of your Twitter Mentions page, which you can open by clicking the @username link (with your own username) in the sidebar:
  • Send @replies anytime. You can send an @reply to someone by just typing the @ symbol and, without a space, his username. Then type your message and click Update. If you just do your reply manually (as opposed to clicking the Reply icon on a specific tweet that you want to reply to), your reply won’t be linked to any particular tweet. If you really want to reply to a specific tweet, you’re usually better off clicking the Reply icon.



    • Read (or don’t read) other people’s @replies. Some more conservative Twitter users prefer not to read @replies that don’t concern them. In the Notices tab on the Settings page, you can opt to:
      • Not display any @replies
      • Display only @replies directed at other Twitter users in your
      • View all @replies from your contacts

      • The preceding settings apply only to tweets that begin with an @username, not those where the @username appears anywhere else in the tweet.
Join a conversation. If you see that a contact on Twitter has responded to someone in his network who wants to know where to get the best pizza in Boston, and you have a recommendation, you can share it. You just have to click the Twitter handle that your friend is @replying to and add your suggestion.


@replies are public tweets. So, unlike text that you send in ani nstant, other people can always read your @replies, and they’ll be stored by search engines. If you have something private that you need to tell someone, use the direct message feature of Twitter.
How to Send Your Twitter Contacts Direct Messages
Direct messages (DM) let you send your contacts private notes through Twitter. Just like regular tweets and @replies, direct messages are limited to 140 characters. Unlike regular tweets and @replies, the only person who can see a direct message is the recipient.


You can send a DM only to a Twitter user who’s following you (but you don’t have to be following that user), which helps cut down on spamming and other unwanted messages. To see whether someone is following you and to send a direct message:

1 Go to the Profile page of the person you want to DM.
You can get to the Profile page by either clicking that person’s @username anywhere that you see it or by adding the username into the URL bar on your web browser
after Twitter.com.
2 Look for the Message link in the right sidebar under Actions.
If the only action visible is to block the person, he does not follow you, and you can’t DM him.

If the only action visible is to block the person, he does not follow you, and you can’t DM him.
3

Click the Message link.

The screen changes to a single text box over the user’s Twitter background that is labeled Send Username a Message.
4

Write and send your message.

Compose your direct message in this box and then click Send.

Sending DMs is easy, but proceed with caution! Many Twitter users have embarrassing tales of DMs that they accidentally sent as public tweets because they formatted the tweet incorrectly or sent it from the Twitter Home screen instead of from the user’s Profile page (best bet) or the Direct Messages page. Double-check, just to be sure.


This is some wonderful info here!!! Thanks so much for taking the time to try and help all of us non-twitters out!

Yes! Every 30 seconds or so! I tried putting #webkinzday first and then last and then in the middle of my message and I still haven't seen any of them show up. Yesterday, I did one and it showed up almost immediately, but not today! (now 28 minutes since my first #webkinzday message today and it still hasn't shown up in the search).
