Is it safe to assume that a backup done with TWRP will not work with CWM?

Also, on the developer page, it says to use one recovery vs another. Is this mandatory or it just the developer's personal preference?

The reason I ask is that when I first rooted my phone I flashed TWRP and did a back up. Then, to get this other ROM on my phone, it was said to use CWM, which I flashed in place of TWRP. If I wanted to go back to my original backup, would I need to reflash TWRP so that I could restore that back up?

Thanks in advance.

Yes. You must use what you backed up with. Either one will flash any Rom.
