Here’s an example of twitter automation gone wrong (well, it’s probably always wrong but this is really bad):

I recently received a tweet that said:

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m looking forward to tweeting on you.  Please do the same follow me on @______

When I received it, I actually did a double take.  I’m sorry, you want to do what ON me?  It sounds like…well, I won’t go there but really?

Automated DM’s and tweets are a no-no.  Don’t let this happen to you.  Nobody wants to be tweeted ON.

With love,


you want to do what on me?
