    Regarding prepositions and an article

    Sentence: "People generally inform the direct message receiver about the direct message through/by/via tweet"

    My question: Which preposition ( through, by or via) would be grammatically correct to use before the word tweet? I know all these prepositions mean the same but still I want to go with the best choice.

    Besides, is there a need of any article before the word tweet? If yes then which article " a" or "the"?

    Thanks and regards

    Re: Regarding prepositions and an article

    Not a teacher.

    You want to know the proper preposition for a verb that didn't exist (in this sense) two years ago?

    I'd probably use "via" but that's me.
