The worst part is replying to something someone tweeted and getting a "?" in response.

Like I said, I feel really ignorant, like I don't know how to do it right or without causing offense.

I tend to have a problem with going onto twitter hashtags or specific lists I've made (like of SFF writers) at a time when no one is active or has posted anything recently.
