That wasn't always the case. When @Twitter first begin
we could see Everyone's @'s to Everyone.
This is how @'s work @Twitter now,
For example if I were to Tweet out to Darin
@DarinRMcClure are you ready for lunch?
only our subset of shared friends will see that tweet beginning with an @.
However, change up the syntax, begin the Tweet with anything but an @ symbol, like this
Hey @DarinRMcClure are you ready for lunch?
or sometimes you may see a dot used for this very reason.
.@DarinRMcClure are you ready for lunch?
In closing, you come to @Twitter to share and connect, do not limit that connection.
