To send a direct message (DM) to another twitter user, simply put a ‘d’ at the start followed by the username you want to send the DM.
You can do it like this: d @username this is a secret message.
Now to receive your mentions and direct messages or other users’ twitter updates, you need to go online after you register to @tweetitow. To start receiving updates, following are steps:
1. Send /on to any gateway numbers to go online. Once you are online, you can then receive your DMs and mentions.
2. To receive other users updates, send the command key in this format: /follow @user1 @user2 @user3
You can follow up to 8 users. To stop following a user, send: /leave @user
3. To go offline, send: /off
Please note that once you go online again, you need to follow again the users. If you want to maintain the people you follow but you want to stop receiving updates for the meantime, then use send: /hold
Following are complete list of command keys you can use regarding receiving updates:
/on -> To go online and start receiving updates — mentions and DMs.
/off -> To go offline. This means you will stop receiving updates.
/credits -> To check how many credits you still have.
/follow @user1 @user2 @user3 up to 8 users -> To start receiving updates from the user you follow. At the start, you will only receive mentions and DMs updates.

/whoami -> To verify what twitter account you registered to T2.
/give @user -> To give another @tweetitow registered user some of your credits. Giving is sharing is loving.
/whatsnew -> To retrieve the 5 recent updates (from the last 24 hours) from any of the people you follow (including those you did not turn on to receive updates from your phone). To receive another 5 recent updates, simply send /whatsnew again — the 5 older tweet updates will be sent to your phone.

Send the command key to any of the gateway numbers for execution.
