I read a very interesting comment today about whether it is good to use this Twitter function. On first glance you might think “Oh what a great way to plug my blog / website / podcast / new funky You Tube video or free whitepaper download!”
But isn’t Twitter about building relationships, engaging in dialogue over time and creating a connection. So perhaps this auto DM function is more like walking into a networking event and trying to thrust your business card at every person you meet before you know anything about them? And we all know how unwelcome that feels!
