    Twitter advice please. 10th May 18 at 7:53 PM
    I'm just after a bit of advice on sending a Tweet as I'm only just starting to use Twitter.

    My name was announced on a company's Twitter and Facebook pages as the winner of a 15 voucher to use in their shops. It is a well known company that runs social media comps all the time. I'd actually entered on Facebook but had received no notification and only came across it by chance. My name is there on the announcement post but not highlighted blue, IYSWIM. It says nothing about contacting them to give details and they haven't contacted me. I sent a DM on Facebook but got a standard auto reply giving an email address. I emailed to the address given but have not received a reply. This was nearly two weeks ago and since then there have been two more competitions on Twitter and Facebook. So now I'm thinking about Tweeting them but I've never done it before, I've only ever Tweeted when you reply on an actual post.

    Should I add a reply to the current Twitter competition post or should I send them a Tweet separately and if so, how do I do this? Many thanks in advance and sorry for the long post- I'm sure a lot of the details could have been left out!

    I'm sorry to hear this, I hope you receive the prize you've won.
    To send a Tweet to someone you need to put @Therename and then write your tweet.
    Thank you to everyone who posts competitions and good luck to everyone who enters.

It's not a massive prize and I'll have to go to another town to spend it so I'm not jumping up and down making a fuss. However, it's strange that they announce a winner for all to see and then make no attempt to either contact that person or respond to messages from them

    You can go to their page too, so if you google / search twitter forthe name of the shop (& twitter (ie MSE Shop Twitter)) it should take you straight to their page, then you can just click the button "Tweet to MSE Shop" or whatever the shop / page is called.

    You could also reply to their tweet in which they announced you as a winner - click on the tweet itself and then underneath you will see a "reply to tweet" box

    You can please some of the people some of the time, all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time but you can never please all of the people all of the time

Grrrr!

    Tweet again underneath the post that shows your name as the winner but this time include @Resolver . You will find this company on MSE pages and they help people resolve issues like this. It very often does the trick.
