    I'm not just going to let him read my tweets out in order to humiliate me. That's all it was. He can read them to his heart's content, but nothing further.

    If you think he's bullying or harassing you mention it to a teacher.

    The fact it's your Twitter posts isn't really relevant, they are public. Make your account private, as I said earlier.

    I completely agree with your comment. The posts aren't the problem, it's that he is using them in order to harass me and expose me for being the person that I am.

    if you think it through, I think you will find that you expose yourself for the person that you are.

    Sorry, my phrasing was off there. What I meant was that some guys have targeted me for being more feminine and struggling to fit in, and those posts just gave them more ammunition.

    But you are giving the "ammunition".

    Make your account private.

    Well, you know the adage: When you are in a hole, stop digging.

    Don't share your innermost secrets with the public.And remember also, Nobody ever went far wrong in having a low opinion of the public's intelligence or kindness.

    Fair enough. The problem is that if I follow someone, can they still see what I am saying? Like, if I am tweeting them something.

    If you don't want people to talk about things you've tweeted, there are two options:

    (a) Don't tweet things you don't want being passed around
    (b) Protect your tweets (so long as these people don't follow you)

    Once you publish something online it's no longer really "yours". People can do with it what they want. Hardly an invasion of privacy - you've put those details out there for everyone to see in the first place.

    Now what I'd recommend is to listen to what people have been telling you and protect your tweets, rather than avoiding it and making a situation out of, well, very little. If the teasing/bullying is the issue, take it up with your school/college. The tweets themselves aren't.

    If you reply to their tweets that person can see it.

    And people you authorise to follow your account can see your tweets.

    It's not nice to be harassed, so if you don't like people using public content as ammunition to bully or belittle you, you should...

    They will if they were already following the account. You would have to identify and block them.

    Yes, you are right he was acting rude by reading it out and trying to get a reaction from you, people can be dicks. But YOU posted it online which makes its ultimately YOUR fault in the end. If you only want close followers seeing your opinions of strictly come dancing or LGBT issues, then make the account private. If you want to keep it public, then well you have to accept the risk that comes with that.
