I have a column of usernames starting with ‘@’. But, whenever I try to add this to Twitter tweeting zap, ‘@’ gets removed in the tweet. Please help me with this.

Using Zapier as a Twitter Auto-Responder

A Zap that auto-responds to search mentions is a violation of Twitter's policies for automation.

Twitter’s policy doesn’t allow replies or mentions in response to search mentions. If your Zap has a Search Mention trigger and an action that sends a Tweet to that user’s @username, the Tweet will be posted but the @ will be removed.

Twitter’s policies for automation don't allow @replies in response to search mentions. Here’s a link that discusses Twitter’s policies for using automations with their platform: https://support.twitter.com/articles/76915#replies-mentions.

Do I include the "@" symbol?

The User Tweet, Favorited Tweet, and New Follower triggers will all ask for a 'Username' when setting up that trigger. You can specify the username with the preceding "@" or not. Both formats (e.g. '@zapier' or 'zapier') will work correctly.
