Detailed question re Twitter Followers & Tweeter's rights to those followers

First thank you for taking the time to respond.  Here's the situation and question.  As an independent contractor I operated the @hansenssf handle and gained followers mostly by direct interaction with them at events in person but also by Twitter recommending the handle to those it deemed the target audience I was looking for.  The contract was ended and I decided to change the handle to @wommism.  I wanted to know if Hansen's HQ was entitled to the followers I accumulated and interacted with?  These interactions were not primarily based around Hansen's product but spanned a wide range of topics.  Whenever detailed questions regarding the company arose they were handled by Hansen's HQ.  I believe that the handle is their property and that the content and followers are mine.  What say you?
