guys i found it
Sign in to your Twitter account. Then go to Settings and at the bottom of the page, uncheck the option 'Protect my tweets'. It is pretty easy- if the option is already unchecked, then your tweets are already unlocked and your tweets will appear on the public timeline on twitter.
Best of luck. :)
After you uncheck "Protect My Tweets", any tweets you post will now be unlocked. HOWEVER, any tweets that you tweeted while this was locked will still be locked and people won't be able to retweet them.
I've been having the same issue for a month. My tweets have been unlocked for at least a month, if not more. And my friends tell me that they can't retweet me and are forced to manually copy and paste.
ok I know atleast 1 of you are thinking no one can retweet you because you cant see that option but your not going to see that option because you CAN'T retweet yourself lol But if your friend told you they can't retweet you then just check your privacy settings and make sure your tweets weren't made private :)
