    Twitter DM software

    Looking into softwre that can DM followers both on initial follow, and for DM'ing after the fact (since there already is a following).

    I see SocialOomph, but its not cheap at $26 to $36 per mo.

    Any recommendations?

    Are you trying to mass DM people? If so, why?

    it's a bad approach... sure social media is important but not by getting fake followers... so you have to be careful with that, don't waste your money on a software like this..

    Why would they be fake followers? Is there some unspoken practice going on?

    Auto follow DMs are definitely not a best practice and something on the decline [thankfully] and is a good way to get you unfollowed if not called out.

    Other follow dm services a search turns up:

    http://www.twitterdmer.com
    http://www.tweetmanager.com
    http://www.vibethemes.com

    Mass DMs on the other hand are essentially broadcasting and doing so in a "spammy" way which goes against the concept of social engagement. Thus my question about what you're trying to do...
