Twitter will show you all of the tweets where you are mentioned, in descending chronological order, listing the newest mentions at the top. Roll your mouse anywhere over the tweet and you’ll be given the options to Favorite the tweet (i.e. the Twitter equivalent of bookmarking a tweet for future reference), Retweet, or Reply.
Clicking “Reply” is probably the easiest and best response to your Twitter mentions. It will automatically include the Twitter handle of the person who sent you the mention so that they’ll know you’ve replied to them.
So, as you’re learning all the myriad skills to make the most of Twitter for business, don’t forget one of the most important fundamentals — check your mentions and reciprocate as soon as possible to keep your followers engaged and the conversation flowing.
Have you ever sent someone a mention and he or she didn’t reply? Have you gotten a good first impression from an account that replied to your mention right away? tell us about it in the comments below.
