This article outlines where specific types of Tweets will appear on our site and in your or others users' profiles. For instance, have you ever wondered where your @reply will appear once you've sent it? Hopefully this table gives a better outline of where Tweets go when you click the "Tweet" button.
What about retweets (RTs)?
You'll find retweets on your Tweets timeline, your profile, and other profile pages on Twitter. To learn more about where retweets (and your Tweets that have been retweeted by others) will show up on Twitter, Click here.
Why don't @replies sent from accounts with protected Tweets show up anywhere?
By protecting your Tweets (making them private), you're telling us that you don't want anyone to see any of your Tweets unless you've given them the right to follow you. If your Tweets are protected and you send an @reply or mention, only those you've approved to view your Tweets will ever be able to see them. If you want to send messages such as mentions or @replies to people who are not following you, un-protect your Tweets to make them public.
Where do people's @replies appear for other users?
If you're not the sender or recipient of an @reply, you may still see an @reply to someone else in your timeline.
Users will see @replies in their Home timeline if they are following both the sender and recipient of the update. Otherwise, they won't see the @reply unless they visit the sender's Profile page.
If you send a reply to someone, it does not show on their profile page. Only replies that person has sent will show on their profile.
