Lots of people use Twitter auto responders. There is controversy over whether it’s a good idea or not. It doesn’t really bother me. I get it. You follow someone, then that someone then knows you are “listening” and it’s their chance to send you some conversion copy or a link to their site. Not a big deal. It’s a bit tacky and not “warm”, but I get it. This post is not about whether you should use autoresponders. Instead, it’s about how to handle auto responders properly. If you are going to use Twitter auto responders be ready to engage.
