Frequently Asked Questions » Twitter Basics
Q. How do I send a message to someone that is not following me?

A. If a Twitter user is not following you, you cannot send him or her a direct message, so you must send that user a public reply.  This is done bt starting  your tweet with the "@" symbol, then the user's Twitter name.  Enter a space, then your message.

Example:

@thepodcast You guys are the greatest in the world, I love you dearly.

We will see this when we check our "mentions" in Twitter, we will see this message.

Note: Technically, you don't need to start the message with the nickname - it can be anywhere in the tweet.
