What are replies and mentions? – Twitter

You can join the conversation on Twitter by replying to others and by mentioning them in your own Tweets.

What is a reply?

  • A reply is a response to another user’s Tweet that begins with the @username of the person you’re replying to. You can reply by clicking the Reply btn on a Tweet.
  • Any Tweet that is a reply to you begins with your @username and will show up in your Notifications tab.
  • When a Tweet starts with a @username, the only users who will see it in their timeline (other than the sender and the recipient) are those who follow both the sender and the recipient.

What is a mention?

  • A mention is a Tweet that contains another user’s @username anywhere in the body of the Tweet. (Yes, this means that replies are also considered mentions.)
  • We collect these messages, as well as all your replies, in your Notifications tab.
  • If you include multiple @usernames in your Tweet, all of those people will see your Tweet in their Notifications tab.

If I see a reply in my timeline, how do I know what Tweet they replied to?

  • Click on the Tweet and it will expand to display the Tweet they replied to.
  • You’ll also see other content related to the Tweet.

Things to note:

  • Visiting another user’s profile page on Twitter will not display Tweets that mention them. However, you can search Twitter for Tweets mentioning their @username.
  • Replies from people with protected Tweets will only be visible to their approved followers.
  • If someone sends you a reply and you are not following them, the reply will not appear in your Home timeline. Instead, the reply will appear in your Notifications tab.

Note: The accepted formula that Auxiliary Mode Inc. uses to calculate the CPM range is $0.45 USD - $25.00 USD.

The range fluctuates this much because many factors come into play when calculating a CPM. Quality of traffic, source country, niche type of video, price of specific ads, adblock, the actual click rate, watch time and etc.

Cost per thousand (CPM) is a marketing term used to denote the price of 1,000 advertisement impressions on one webpage. If a website publisher charges $2.00CPM, that means an advertiser must pay $2.00 for every 1,000 impressions of its ad. The "M" in CPM represents the Roman numeral for 1,000.
