Send a thank you message to your new Twitter followers
Have you ever wondered how when you “follow” certain Twitter users, you get an immediate thank you email from them? Some of them may even start following you immediately. After I received about half a dozen such quick emails thanking me for following some users, I started thinking that there must be a service that auto responds whenever a person starts following a Twitter user.
Sure enough, a quick search on Google led me to TweetLater.com.
I am sure there must be many other similar services but this discovery is enough to quench my curiosity.
Tweetlater does the following for you.
- Automatically responds to your new followers with a your personal message.
- Automatically “follows” your new “followers” (if you choose to do so)
- Schedules your tweets to be published at a later time
The service is free and you can manage multiple Twitter accounts from a single TweetLater account.
P.S. Follow me on Twitter.

Many twitter users (myself included) HATE the auto welcome direct messages as there is enough twitter stream traffic that it just seems canned and yucky.

I agree with Lynda, I don’t like these instant messages, they bug me!
I do like the idea of instantly following someone back though, that could be useful – as long as people do add each other for the correct reason, not just for the sake of it.
And setting tweets to be sent later – that would be awesome for when I have a scheduled blog to be published, I can set tweet later to also let all my followers know about it at the same time.

Great write-up, thanks 🙂
However, just to add, leaving messages for your new followers and automatically following them is not free. I have just looked as I was interested and found that there is a small fee of a few dollars a month. They have obviously changed it since you wrote this.
Thanks for the site though 🙂
