Is there a free way to send an automated DM in Twitter when someone follows you. I understand that socialoomph do this but that they charge.
Are there free ways? Yes. Should you do this, absolutely not.
Social media, by the very description of the term, requires actual engagement. Automation has no place in that and in the case of auto DMs, the context is just so wrong that it stands out from the very start as a brand doing things all wrong.

Agreed. Nothing is more irritating then getting some automated bit of spam. I'd rather them not send me anything then to be sent something that a computer created... especially when it's -social- media. =p

I'd side with Ted S on this one. If you're going to interact with people, it's best that the message will come directly from you, even if it's just a simple thank you. What if, by any chance, you receive a DM with a question, and you automate the replies to that with just a thank you, what are they going to think about you?
First there is no Automatic DM software in the marker (so far as I know). I would recommend you to show you actual engagement with your followers. DMs might irritate followers and you will start losing them after a stipulated time. Yes, sending DMs manually would be quite slow but it would give you better results in comparison to automation.
I have not found even a single way for DM twitter followers and followings. Even if there are some ways for automatic DM, it's a bad practice for marketing. Better engage personally rather than a automatic software.
