Calendar to Twitter - @ not working.

Hi, I have a calendar on onedrive that sends to twitter. However, the @ symbol is not working correctly when tweeted. Here are some screenshots with arrows to point out what happening. Thanks for any input on my issue.

Hi @kimber ,

 

As the post provided by @fchopo mentioned, Mentioning a @user while posting a tweet is not supported in Microsoft flow currently. Specifically, the "@" characters will be stripped while posting a tweet.

If you want the function to mention a user in twitter to be supported in Microsoft flow, you could submit an idea to flow ideas forum:

Hello @kimber 

This is a limitation by the Twitter connector, and therefore this behaviour is normal. Have a look at this post (altough it is a little bit old, its information is accurate): https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/I-Found-A-Bug/Post-a-Tweet-Fails-when-trying-to-mention-a-Twitte...

Hope it helps!
