What does it mean to protect your tweets on twitter?

By malmy at 26 November, 2012, 7:40 am

Im trying to limit who can view what I post on twitter. I went to my settings and changed my tweets to protected tweets. What does this mean though? Is there a way to approve who follows you? Because previously like 28 people followed me can they see my protected tweets? I want it to be just friends and family, is that possible on twitter?

Yes. It is Possible Only After You Approve Them!
Protecting tweets Actually Mean:
* People will have to request
to follow you and each
follow request will need
approval
–>Your Tweets will only be
visible to users you’ve
approved, meaning that
other users will not be able
to retweet your Tweets
–>Protected Tweets will not
appear in Twitter search
–>@replies you send to people
who aren’t following you
will not be seen by those
users (because you have not
given them permission to
see your Tweets)
–>You cannot share
permanent links to your
Tweets with anyone other
than your approved
followers
–>note: t.co links, even
those shared via DM, are
neither private nor
public. Anyone with the link
will be able to view the
content.
