Another question on using Twitter.

Posted on 2012-03-09
Last Modified: 2012-03-09
This week CNBC received about 400 entrants in a contest.

Anyone who wanted to participate was to use Twitter with:
@CNBCSquawkSt #nailthenumber

I click on CNBCSquawkSt and I only see a small number of "tweets" since March 5th.
I click on #nailthenumber and I only see a small number of "tweets" since March 5th.

Why do I not see all the tweets, all 400 of the tweets that entered the contest?

I'd like to actually see my own to make sure they got it.
I did not win of course, but I am not 100% confident that I am using Twitter correctly.

When you sign into twitter, did you go to!/CNBCSquawkSt (where there have been 713 tweets)

Or search for #nailthenumber and you will see all the tweets that used that hash tag.

When I click on my Tweeter link it takes me to my account.
There I see the tweets that I have sent = 2.
On the one sent on March 7th, I see:
@CNBCSquawkSt #nailthenumber

If I click on CNBCSquawkSt I only see a small number of "tweets" since March 5th.
If I  click on #nailthenumber I only see a small number of "tweets" since March 5th.

I'll post a screen shot of what I see, and you'll see that I am not seeing, the 400 tweets that should be there since March 7th.

Here is what I see when I search #nailthenumber.
A few tweets today, then back to March 8th and then back to March 6th.
Where are the 400 tweets that were sent to #nailthenumber, so I can see mine as well as all the others?

If you put #nailthenumber in your tweet, then you should see it among the search results for #nailthenumber.

There are lots of tweets with that hash tag:!/search/realtime/%23nailthenumber

No I do not see that. On the screen shot it shows tweets from today, then below that on the right you see the date March 8th and the one at the bottom is March 6th.
Where are all the 400 that are supposed to be there?

All 400 were sent to @CNBCSquawkSt #nailthenumber
Where to see that list of 400?

Sorry I meant to come back sooner and tell you that you can expand the search results at the bottom of the page - still it is not easy to do what you were trying to do!
