I recently returned to Twitter after a few years absence, mostly cos I wanted to keep up with all the latest from certain trans-related groups.
Whenever anyone followed me I followed them back, just like I had always done, and I soon had a band of followers that, whilst hardly enormous, was bigger than I felt it ought to be for someone who’d never sent a single, solitary tweet!
Then came the overtures, ranging from crude chat-up lines to declarations of undying love! One guy even wanted to fly halfway round the world so we could be together, though our chat had been shorter and (to me) less significant than I’ve had with many a bus driver whilst buying a ticket!
I’ve unfollowed the lot of them and things are back to normal, but it’s noteworthy how this never happened in the past, when I presented as a guy!
