I've written a game (@Tweet_Quiz) which allows players to @reply to a clue. The problem is that anyone can view another user's timeline to get at their submissions and thereby cheat. I need the ability to either have a hidden reply sent that won't appear in a timeline or the ability to delete a

Using DM will cause a different problem. If I tweet a clue every few minutes, each person will have a stack of DM's in their profile to delete. This will be inconvenient to delete constantly. What games developers need is a better way of communicating with players.
