So this might be a naive question...but how come twitter doesn't have an individual privacy option for each tweet? I've decided to protect my tweets/twitter account, but don't need each and every tweet protected. Or, at the very least, I'd like to be able to control who follows me without protecting the entire account.
You can always block individual followers and they won't be able to follow you anymore, but if your tweets are public they'll still be able to read them. Also note that if your tweets are private and you tweet at someone they won't be able to see it (it was an annoyance I encountered that made me decide to leave my account public)
