.@TheXFactorUSA How can I send you a DM to vote, when you are not following me?, a photo by stevegarfield on Flickr.
If you are using the Mac twitter client, you can't DM someone who is not following you. That's pretty standard in the twitter interface.
What Is a Direct Message? (DM)?
Tip: Make sure that user follows you. You may only send a direct message to your followers.Here's how you can DM @TheXFactorUSA without them following you back.
Go here: http://twitter.thexfactorusa.com/
Makes no sense.
Click here to vote for Drew via Twitter.
If you go to twitter.com and DM @TheXFactor it works without them following you back. Curious.
On the Twitter for Mac client, as shown above, it doesn't work.
isaach: thanks for the bug report. it's a known issue with the mac client and i'm working with that team on it.Thanks!
