    Ok....I've used Twitter before but not for awhile, and it's confusing the heck out of me right now. Please let me know if/what I'm doing wrong:

    I had an old account, but I deactivated it tonight. I established a new account on gmail, which was ********@gmail.com. That's what I assume is the Twitter address.

    My username is such and [email protected] such and such. I've tested the account by tweeting both from the computer and also from my Android. The tweets show up instantly on both devices. However, I asked a friend to try to tweet, and to try to receive my practice tweets, and she says it doesn't work. Nothing shows up under the search.

    I search on Twitter for myself, and nothing comes up; it just says "nothing found."

    can someone please just tell me how to get ground zero here? That is, how to get others to sign up for these tweets? And why my name won't turn up under search? And....IS the account number the *******@gmail.com??

    Thanks in advance....Twitter really confused me.

    And fwiw: the account is for a 3-day school field trip. If it would help the troublshooting to list the actual name of the account I can do that.
