**As people ask questions, the page will say  something like “two new tweets” or “one new tweet”, etc. You can either just keep clicking that, or just keep refreshing the Twitter page to see people’s questions to you. Make sure to use the chat’s designated hashtag phrase after every tweet so that it shows up on the search page you are on. The tweet button to answer questions and make comments is in the top right corner of the screen above. It’s a quill pen within brackets.
