Re: a probably basic twitter question

I have this exact same issue, though I’ve never gotten  an error message. From what I’ve learned Juan is right, and some users may have their accounts set to not receive direct messages at all. If you have any other way to contact these people do so, there might be a way to get them to except your direct messages. It sure is frustrating though. Good luck, hope you can figure something out!!

I believe they also have to be following you for you to be able to send direct messages.

I'm using TWBlue on windows for Twitter. Whenever I direct message

some users I get a response of error 403 and I can't send them a dm.

Only certain users, others I can dm just fine. Any ideas? I'm

following all the users I'm trying to dm.


Any help with twitter appreciated, the syntax and the howto do things.
