Unable to "Post a Tweet" with Twitter user name after "Get User"

Workflow has 3 steps:

 

1. "When a new tweet is posted" (successfully executes)

2. "Get User" (successfuly executes)

3. "Post a Tweet":  @Anonymous Name - [message to the user FAILS]

 

Step 3 Fails: 

I'm unable to use the code: @ @{body('Get_user')['UserName']}

The code does not transalte to the User Name WHEN an @ comes before the "Get_user" command.

*** However if I leave off the 1st @ the code does execute, and DOES replace the code with the user name.  Unfortunately, I'd like to send the username a message, and without the @ in front of the user name, I'm unabloe to send them a message.

Re: Unable to "Post a Tweet" with Twitter user name after "Get User"

Hi ianroseman,

 

I assume that this thread about “Twitter users mentions” could be your reference:
https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Flow-Discussion/Twitter-users-mentions/m-p/7173

 

Staff Sammerch mentioned that we explicitly filter out the use of @ mentions when posting to Twitter. We do this to comply with Twitter's anti-spam rules.

 

So it is currently not possible to mention a user using “@”, as flow will remove “@” when post the tweet.

 

I haven’t seen such a request on Flow Ideas Forum, please consider to create one at here. It seems that there are many customers are requesting for this feature. Hope PGs will take it into consideration in the future releases.
