A. Since there’s no official way of pinning someone’s tweet on Twitter, you can’t do it using the official app. You will have to use third-party tools like Twtools.

Q. How can you see someone’s pinned tweet?

A. The pinned tweet is visible at the top of the Twitter timeline labeled as ‘pinned tweet.’ So, go to the person’s Twitter account to view it. If you can’t see such a label, the person hasn’t added a pinned tweet.

Q. Is it possible to pin more than one tweet on Twitter?
