So, there was the Pitdark pitch contest going on not long ago. I sent my tweets as usual and got a like from an agent. But I noticed this agent rejected my query sometime ago (few months). Should I follow her directions since she liked my pitch? I don't want to annoy her again, but I wonder if she had second thoughts on my manuscript, or maybe she doesn't even remember. Anyways, what would be your suggestion?

I honestly don't know too much about how all the Twitter pitches work, but my thought is what do you have to lose? If she rejects you again, you're only wasting a couple minutes of her time. When you send her stuff, don't mention the previous rejection, just stick with her liking your tweet, and if she passes again, you're no worse off than you were before. Good luck.

Please note I'm also posting on behalf of people who can't sign up, so if I provide a link in the main body of the post, make sure to reciprocate on that thread.
