I have certainly argued with Christians on Twitter before. When it has happened, it has almost always been in the context of my mistaking trolling for sincere questions or comments. In the most common scenario, a Christian reaches out with what I assume is a legitimate question or comment. I respond, and then it quickly becomes clear that I have been trolled by a Christian who has zero interest in any sort of meaningful interaction. Instead, the Christian is interested in proselytizing, showing off for other Christians, or trying to elicit an angry reaction to support claims of atheist hostility. The moment this becomes clear, I stop responding. This isn't why I use Twitter.
