Searching for @hayleywestenra will list all the tweets directed to her or that meintion her in that way. You won't necessarily see the tweets of the people she is following though.
Not quite Martin. Searching for @hayleywestenra (with or without capitals but no space) will show Hayley's tweets and all tweets addressed to her whether you are following them or not.
Searching for hayley westenra will show only tweets that mention her but are not addressed to her.
It does get confusing doesn't it?
Best wishes Grant
Martin was actually kind of right in what he said. Often people will structure a tweet something like this.
Went to a concert for my birthday last night. @hayleywestenra was the star of the show
I think that is what Martin meant by mentioning Hayley in that way. But if the tweet just said "Hayley Westenra", then it would only show up in the (Hayley Westenra) search you mentioned. Hope that makes sense.
Ben - I'm not sure you fully understand how it all works yet. What do you mean by it doesn't show up on her page? As soon as you send a tweet directed at @hayleywestenra, she will see it at the top of her list when she clicks a link on her page. There isn't any delay...tweets only go missing in searches (as far as I'm aware).
Grant - returning to a previous discussion, I think you can only go back up to 7 days in a search, but on profile pages you can go back as far as they go. Do you think that sounds right?
