Great post - I used to feel auto Dms were crap and truth be told most are - but mine gets about a 28% engagement rate and I truthfully think it is due to the use of vieo and the non sales approach. It gets people to visit my site and start engaging with me on Twitter immediately. Here's the video: http://www.eyejot.com/mview/43D680DFB8C515C9083EDF9CABF878B71EFA86F96A45170629C9981EE14966BE

You inspired me, Paul. I'm still not convinced about auto-follow and auto-DM, but I'll admit they have their uses until I can bring myself to try them. I firmly believe that "Twitter is as Twitter does" and that new "best practices" are being discovered, promoted, and implemented widely on a regular basis because social media is still in its infancy. Thanks for giving me something new to think (and maybe even write a post) about!

Thanks for your comments Sharon. At this point, you can call me curious and open to experimentation. I still advocate for standards and best practices and don't want my post to, in any way, indicate that I've abdicated that.

I'd love to see a post from you on the topic and will link to it from this one.


Thank you both! This article has actually answered some things I was pondering in my head.. to be or not to be..

p.s. Mary - I thought
your auto-DM was hilarious.
Very engaging.
