I'm 20 and moved to Germany two years ago, moving out with 18 is rather uncommon in my country (Netherlands). About one year ago my mother became more and more clingy (my assumption is that she didn't think I was serious about moving out and would come back, but after one year noticed it was serious).
She has been managing the social media for my dad's company for years now, which mainly consists of Twitter. She has also been using it for posting personal landscape photos for a while and really takes pride and joy out of seeing how many times people have seen her photos. As she is a stay at home mom, she is most of the time on social media besides grocery shopping and walking the dog, this was already the case when I still lived at home.
For the past two years she has been trying to get me to use Twitter too for my freelance work, which is not a bad idea since getting exposure is very important for me to get work. However,I use other social media websites and I have always tried to avoid Twitter because of my mom's pushing. Because of a magazine accidently featuring my (empty) Twitter account instead of my other social media a few weeks ago, I started using Twitter after all, to at least make use of the featuring.
Now my mom replies, retweets and texts me within minutes after every single tweet I post, for example with "helpful advice" about how to use Twitter. Because I don't want to hurt her feelings, I only say that I don't want to use it so much and that I just use it on a low fire, but she doesn't listen. I also don't want to be mean and say things like "I don't care about Twitter and retweets mean nothing to me." because she takes so much pride and joy from it herself and she's a loving person.
The problem is that I already talked about this in a serious manner with her, multiple times, she then seems to get it for a few days and afterwards falls back into her clingy talking about Twitter.
How can I permanently communicate to her that I don’t want to use Twitter a lot and also don’t want regular advice on how to use it without hurting her feelings?
