Easily share your thoughts on someone else’s Tweet with a Reply. Respond to a Tweet and get in the conversation.
A Tweet that’s in response to another will have a note to say who it’s replying to. When you get replies to your own Tweets, you’ll see a similar note. For each Tweet, there’s a count of the number of replies.
When you reply to a Tweet, the author will be able to see your reply and will also get a notification. You’ll also see your reply on your timeline.
Additional replies to the same Tweet may appear in your timeline if you are following the accounts that are replying to yours or other Tweets.
Replying to Tweets is simple. Just use the reply icon.
When you see a Tweet you’d like to reply to, tap the reply icon and write your response. Press the reply button when you’re ready and your response will be sent.
If someone responds to one of your Tweets, you’ll get notified on your Notifications tab (or through a push notification). If you’re following someone that replies to you, you will also see the Tweet in your home timeline.
