If Twitter is supposed to be a social media. What is wrong with tweeting 1st time contacts to several dozen address's that have chosen to follow me? Or to contact several dozen individuals who have chosen to follow me. If that is too much traffic that is one thing it is another if you are censoring free speech and communication between individuals who have chosen to keep in touch by following. I would understand your being upset if I were trying to make sales, but I'm not. I am new to Twitter so maybe there is more to it's use that I need to learn. But if it is a problem as to how many tweets I put out in a short period of time, perhaps you could implement an addressing feature for direct messaging ( tweeting ) that would send the tweet to more than a general post as these individuals have already chosen to follow me. Being able to select receivers makes it much less of a hit or miss proposition as to whether those who are following me get my communications or not as they will receive a notification. It should be up to the recipient to choose whether to accept or not. I mean they already are given a block feature if they so choose to use it. Right? I mean I'm knew to this Tweeting but I've already blocked some porno sites that sent me contacts. So being a social media if I or anyone else has important information to share, should that not be our choice and the choice of the recipient? I mean if they don't want the contacts they can always block using the feature you already supply. Social media is interaction.
