My understanding is that Twitter interprets weets that start with a username (“@blahblah You’re the bestest”) as a reply directed at the particular user, and so posts this only to users which follow both people involved. People get around this, and have their replies posted to all their followers feeds, by starting with some other character, often “.” (“.@blahblah You’re still the bestest”).
