Can't find my tweets

Long live the webmasters at webmaster world.

I'm trying to learn the basics of using Twitter. I've set up three test accounts, and I'm experimenting by sending tweets back and forth between them.

This one is a mystery to me. I created a scenario where account 2 was following account 1, but account 1 was not following account 2.

Then I tweeted to account 1 from account 2. I did this several times, and each time my tweets were nowhere to be found on account 1. They appeared in account 2, but for account 1, it's like they vanished into thin air.

From an account 1 perspective, what happened to my tweets?

your "mentions" in others' tweets don't show up among your tweets.

you can see your mentions in the @Connect tab of the web interface.
they will also appear in your stream.

Most likely you have setup account 1 to be a private account?

A tweet to a private account that is not following you is useless. They won't see it.
