The @ symbol is a way of referring to another Twitter user. For example @jimmy_wales means you're either sending a message to Jimmy Wales or you're talking about him in your message. On your homepage, you'll see a linked search where you can find people mentioning your username with an @ before it. This is how you find other people's replies to you.
