Why does the code toString run automatically ?

Here, To lessen my confuse over this course. I still don't understand. Why this toString method can call by default without make a call. As per my understanding , normally we have to call method first before they're working.

For example, we printf object "tweet" directly not "tweet.toString()". But from this exercise, It's same as we print out with "tweet.toString()".

This is a pretty good explanation. The print function automatically uses it's toString method.
