Sorry to hear that Andy. A similar thing happened to me on a different platform, and I found being caught up in one of these social media storms a singularly unpleasant experience.
If used in the right way Twitter and other social media channels can be fantastic, and I've found some great stories and contacts over the years through them. However, when it goes bad it goes really bad: I recommend 'So you've been publicly shamed' by Jon Ronson as a primer.
Kudos to you for trying to reply to people, but in my experience unless there's a specific wrong to be righted it's just not worth arguing with the mob. Everyone brings their own agenda and you'll never convince them otherwise.
Funnily enough, if you were ever to meet your trolls face to face (as I've once done), they'd most likely be meek little lambs.
My shameful speedo secret has been revealed...

Hope that's helpful,
I think this one has run its course. Thread closed.
Hmm. Apologies for that Comptable - I'll make enquiries and get back to you.
I'm not sure I see much of a future for this thread. Closed.
Closing down this thread and issuing a gentle reminder to members not to delete your questions.
Actually laughed out loud at that one...
Apologies Andy, I have no idea why the swear filter picked that one up. I'll go and fix that now.
plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose...
