Automated DM’s-Any Buyers?

Twitter is a big funfair where you are excited to connect to all kinds of people. Though there is a Klout score that acts as a benchmark, you really don’t care much just as we don’t. All this amazing experience goes down the drain when you see an automated message from one of those guys whom you have recently followed. As if someone spoilt your dinner by spoiling your lovely dessert. Don’t you think so?
Automated DM’s are not cool
Some twitteraties may debate that automated DM’s are like welcome drinks when you join a party and are served with love but don’t you think they should be offered individually. Automated DM’s are not at all cool and they can’t build relationships on Twitter. Ask yourself, how you would feel when you see those automated messages which are just a sales pitch as if a leaflet of what they do and blah blah is posted to you. There is no harm in welcoming a new twitter friend but there are some cool ways of doing it too. You can use the famous #isnowfollowing on your time line so that your community knows it and also gives a chance for others to follow. DM’s are good but personalized ones anytime. You can always spend two minutes to personalize your DM, if not then twitteraties are smart enough to find out if that message comes from your heart or from a particular app.
Talk in real time
If you ask us, we don’t do both of them, though we find #isfollowing cool but we like to talk to our new friends on Twitter steam line when we find an interesting topic to converse. This helps us to build a relation and that can lead to a strong bonding as we have with @Leowid.
Neither Leo sent us any automated DM’s nor did he did sales pitch about @bufferapp when we spoke for the first time on twitter. Today we are well connected with him in the social media space, follow his blog, share his articles, spread the good words about buffer app and we believe this might have helped him a bit. For all these activities neither Leo told us nor did he pay us.
So why are we doing this, obviously we love the way he has created the relationship and bonded with us on twitter. For us this has been a learning experience and if you really want to build a relationship with your new friends on twitter, do as you normally will do in real life and kill those automated DM’s and engage in real-time. Businesses, you are also not an exception.
Do you think automated DM’s serve their purpose? Do let us know your views.
