Guna,Check into the in_reply_to_status_id parameter for the statuses/update
method [1]:

in_reply_to_status_id.  Optional. The ID of an existing status that the
update is in reply to.

   - Note: This parameter will be ignored unless the author of the tweet
   this parameter references is mentioned within the status text. Therefore,
   you must include @username, where username is the author of the
   referenced tweet, within the update.
