Twittering on.

Not exactly a member of the twitterati, although for what it's worth I do put out the occasional tweet - but here's the thing, and maybe fellow tweeters can help.

Over the past month a small envelope icon on the left hand side and from being blank, it is now showing alongside it in blue first a number 1 and now this week, a number 2.

So what's that all about?

Checked online and checked my settings but still no clue none the wiser. Tried clicking on it and it just tells me I once shared a link but the numbers are still there when I return to my home page. I had thought it meant somebody had sent me an email, but apparently not.

Any idea tweeters and if so, how do I clear it?

Re: Twittering on.

Usually indicates you have a Direct Message (or PM as it's called anywhere else). In your case you've got two.

@7up 

Thanks, and that would seem to be the case, but how do I access them as clicking on the icon only tells me I have shared a tweet.

All very confusing. 😃

Re: Twittering on.

Are you on windows or a phone?

I have a hunch you're eiher seeing the number of retweets other people have put out or you're clicking the wrong icon.

On Windows with the laptop and Android I think it is on my Kindle both of which show the same details on that icon. Not that concerned about missing anything, just a little irritated not knowing what it is and how to clear it. 

Like somebody phoning or knocking on your door and nothing there when you answer... not that either of those things happen!

Cheers.

Hopefully this explains it?
