Synonyms of "Twitter" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between He followed me on Twitter. and I was followed by him on Twitter. ?

The meaning is the same.

The first one sounds much better and much more natural
Q: What is the difference between for as long as
(Twitter will allow employees to work from home for as long as they want.) and as long as
(Twitter will allow employees to work from home as long as they want.) ?
A: The use of "for" in this sentence is to address that you are talking about the time frame they can do or will be doing the action of the sentence.
I would suggest using "for" just simply because it sounds better, as well as it is a good habit to get into.
In this sentence "for" is not necessary for the sentence to still make sense grammatically, but if you were to say "I am going to study an hour" instead of "I am going to study for an hour" we cannot tell if you are studying for an hour or if you are taking the hour as a time unit and just studying it.
"for" is used in the sentence to redirect the subject to how long the action will be done if that makes sense.

A: A more natural way of saying this would be:

"This twitter account was found by a young American." (英語で「exposed」というの言葉は「さらされた」の意味です。ちょっと否定的な意味します。) "I was shocked that I was misunderstood by this boy. I am gay, but I will definitely not solicit minors. However, when I tried to explain this to him in the DM in detail, he erased his tweet. Writing on twitter in Japanese and English as a gay man, I'm sure I will need to deal with these kinds of situations often."
