After I "agreed" to something I was unsure of, I got back on ... I wanted to save my tweets. Some of them I can use here on my website. I shared being shut down with another member and the same thing happened to him. By choice, I have "unfollowed" anyone who is not following me, with the exception of a few (health and autism pages). I have not yet received a notice telling me I had "unfollowed" too many people at one time ... haha ... so far, so good.
It seems that may be a common mistake for anyone who joins Twitter without reading all their rules and regulations. Their rules and regulations are no less maddening and difficult to understand as the 6 pt. type fulll of elastic clauses on a legal document.
I'm still getting some of my tweets and replies "favorited", though they may not be "following" me. Time will tell, whether I will continue to play with these twits on Twitter, and continue to tweet. I've been told, "Don't give up; look forward to more of your tweets!"
I just need to learn the Twitter protocol, to avoid getting my hands slapped again ... hehe!
