Twitter auto DMs or automated direct messages are awful things are they not? Nothing says, “my time is more valuable than yours” like an auto DM.
Impersonal. Narcissistic. Pathetic. Even disrespectful.
An auto DM makes another ask right after a favor is granted: someone thinks enough of a person or his or her content to follow them, and they reward them by sending an impersonal, automated, spammy direct message asking their new follower to download an eBook or follow them in three other social media sites.
People hate DMs. Don’t use them or you’ll wind up in a post like one of these:
