Please don’t use an automated Twitter system

you want to do what on me?

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,
