    It DOES work (go to background when you exit) but the problem is that, if you have that checked, your TB opens at the "what are you doing now" page instead of the "friends timeline" page even though you set "friends timeline" as your default page.

    I think retweet just includes the original msg that you you're replying to in your reply. Not sure what direct msg is exactly - it appears to be a direct (private) msg to the person you're responding to, i. e. not posted publicly as other tweets are.

    Reply is replying to follower(s) where other friends can see the tweet you sent out. Retweet allows you to send a tweet you received to your friends who may not follow a certain person or company, etc. Direct message is private where only a certain recipient gets the message you sent out.

    You're welcome and thank you, but you give me too much credit.

    Twitter's website helps explain a lot of this so that's the only reason why I can answer some of these questions.

    I appreciate it. I'm too lazy to go to the site to get instructions.

    Just installed it and reboot the device (BOLD running the .247 beta) but
    1- although I set the default splashscreen to "friends timeline" it opens to "what you are doing"
    2- I can't seem to get the icons/pics of my friends to pull down

    BTW (to Sirthinks) on my device there is a choice to follow someone from the menu but no choice or option to search for someone. Is that what you were referring to?

    (scratch #1> I see the answer in another post)
    (scratch #2> changing the "background on escape" fixed the icon issue as well)

    From time to time, you have to wonder...... What was I saying?

    If I recall correctly, direct messages get emailed or SMS'd; retweet only goes to those who follow you.

    I got an sms tweet from JB and I replied to it and it went on the friends timeline, so no one knew what I was talking about. So, that must have been a direct message? How does the person sending the direct message get the response if they are not added as a follower? Plus, why can't I add friend requests from my phone? It never lets me, I always have to add from a PC. Oh, and why is my picture huge compared to everyone else's? It's embarrasing

    Yeah--I get tweets from The Onion because I follow them and then by re-tweeting, those who follow me get the tweet from The Onion regardless of whether they follow The Onion or not.

    Yes, it sounds like you got a DM and you replied with reply instead DM and those people got your response were "Huh?"

    I believe that a person who gets a DM who is not necessarily a follower gets it because it goes to their email and/or SMS.

    Most operations seems to work better through PC, but right now I tried sending a DM through their site and it kept returning with a "That Page doesn't exist." What? I've done it before through their site with no problem.

    Your picture is larger because you're extra special.
