    Whatever app you choose, how do you not only follow and get updates, but see all the tweets not from the person you are following but that are on their page?

    For example...

    I am following ScottBrownMA for the election in MA.

    I happen to be using Swift app.

    On my "timeline" I see his main messages...

    But yet I don't see the other people who are posting...like:

    I don't see.

    Is there some idiot's guide to Twitter? I'm pretty computer literate but I've never really used Twitter before. :(

    Is it basically just like a "wall" on Facebook?

    Just get Twidroid from the market. You set the time for updates in your settings.

    But is Twitter used like a discussion board at all? Like a wall on Facebook?

    No its not like that. Twitter is hard to describe. You can follow friends if you like or you can make new friends. You can follow me if you like just send me a tweet a d I'll follow you back. Search hookbill.

    So it's almost like an RSS feed? Read but don't interact?

    Now I just got a Twitter Error. Twitter Rate Limit Reached. Twitter sets a limit on how many times it can be used in an hour. There have been more than 150 requests...

    What does that mean and how do I fix it?

    I just got a message saying twitter was over capacity. Try later. Why are you using twitter mobile instead of a client like twidroid?

    I am using Twidroid. And that's where I'm getting the message.

    I'm only following three things: FoxNews, ScottBrownMA, and PittsburghPenguins. And I used it for like 10 minutes before I got the error. What exactly is causing the error?

    Is it because I just installed the program so it loaded a **** ton of tweets from all day?

    For some reason I'm not getting notifications from Twidroid.
