2 Free Twitter Tools to Send Automated Direct Messages

Twitter Automated Direct Messages For Free

No one can deny the fact that Twitter is a great marketing tool.  You just need to know how to use it effectively and how to create an attractive profile.

There are many other social bookmarking websites available for driving traffic like Facebook, StumbleUpon, etc., but it’s tough to beat Twitter. And because Twitter is so popular, there are many tools available for following Twitter users with similar interests, unfollowing users in bulk or sending automatic direct messages to your followers.

Sending direct messages to new followers or to old ones to introduce your blog or your new services is not considered spam as long as you do it properly and send only useful links. Moreover, Twitter have removed the limit of 140 characters from Direct messages, and now you there is no character limit on DM.

Therefore, I want to share with you a few useful twitter tools for sending automatic direct messages and for sending direct messages in bulk.

Following are three free tools for sending auto DMs (direct messages) and mass DMs to your Twitter followers:


SocialOopmh is a tool that will help you to increase your productivity by sending auto direct messages. In addition to sending auto direct messages SocialOopmh also allows you to schedule Tweets, track keywords, follow those who are following you, get new followers, use buzz and much more.

If you prefer to use a simple tool to send auto direct messages to your new followers rather than getting confused with other features, then TwitterDMer is for you. TwitterDMer allows you to send your personalized direct messages to new followers, and also to selected ones by specifying specific user details.

Important notes about Twitter DM:

  • You can send a private message to anyone who follows you on twitter.
  • You can reply to DM to anyone who sends you a Direct message, regardless if they follow you back or not.
  • There is no character limit for Twitter DM.

A few further words of important advice:

Never try to sell something via Auto DM, and always be friendly and connect personally with your followers.  (I suggest the same manner of engagement with new followers on Facebook as well.)

    Hi Harsh, this is a great articles. I am looking for a tool that allows me to send a DM to all folks who favorite my tweet. Can you help me with any such free tool.
    Thanks in advance.

  2. says

    Another niche article Harsh, I was looking for a tool to send DM’s on Twitter and having trouble finding exactly what I needed.

    Thanks you your write up here I am going to try out TwitterDMer since it sounds like what I have been looking for.

    Thanks for another great article with good info.

  3. says

    I can also confirm that TwitterDMer is not working… I will try TweetManager. It also appears that True Twit gives the option to automate messages to new followers, I’ll check that.

  4. Aleksei Maide says

    TwitterDMer is an awesome tool, increased the clickthrough rate from twitter about 300%, it’s great! A must use if you care about efficiency.

  5. says

    I like the idea of auto DM to those that follow you as long as its just saying thank you. Sometimes you may get alot of followers at once and are unable to send a thank you to each one. I see nothing wrong with it when used for that purpose. Sure personal connecting is better but you may miss someone. I tried twitterDMer , doesn’t seem to work

  6. says

    Hi Harsh,
    great post. It gave me an entrypoint to Auto DMs. I don`t agree those guys saying that DMs are spam. I think it is one way to start further relationship following up the the first contact! But anyway it just a small fine line betweeen spammy selling and engaging!

    Well done!

    Cheers Martin

    BTW: I have referenced your Article in one of my recent posts aggregating some twitter tips!

  7. Jessica says

    Hi, thanks for the list. Extremely useful for Twitter power-users. But SocialOomph has started charging money for the autoDM feature.

  8. Stephen Malan says

    We just use TweetAdder and Hootsuite. Love both of them But will have to take a look at these too.

    Thanks again!

  9. Emmanuel Ayeni says

    I have been using hootsuite for a while for automating tweets but I look out for something more for bulk direct messages to promote my latest blog post.
    Thanks for suggestions

  10. xoseattle says

    TWITTER DMer does not work! Please remove this from your list. You can login with a fake username and password and it will show you as logged in. I tested this out with my actual personal data and it never wound up sending any DMs. I have since changed my password for safety. Others should too.

    Also, Social Oomph no longer provides auto DM for free, they now charge around $8 a month for this feature. This should not be listed as free on your list.

  11. supadave says

    socialoomph is no longer free they want you to yearly, monthly or bi weekly to have auto dm and auto follow enable. twitter dmer doesn’t seem to work>

  12. Nick Blank says

    Hi Harsh,

    I’m not too fond of automation myself, and would ONLY use to take it to the point where it can be a benefit to BOTH – my followers and me. Spamming people does not benefit either.

    Looking for a DM tool myself, I came across http://followbackr.com, which provides auto DM for new users and reports about your follower influence. It’s useful to know which followers are worth engaging with, and then I can DM them personally to engage with them.

  13. gurmeetsingh says

    thanks buddy! really good one. been doing rnd on the sites recommended by you. liked the first two that u mentioned. btw, came up with another lovely site http://www.ifttt.com. you might consider covering it next time. cheers!

  14. Mars Vertiog says

    Unfortunately, neither of these works. SocialOomph is paid service, TwitterMassDM and Tweet Manager does not include Automated DMs at all and TwitterDM does not work.


  15. Max says

    Thank you for the article i tried TwitterMassDM it seems cool, but how do i know if it really sent the DMs? please let me know thanks a bunch

  16. Fox says

    tweetadder is also a good tool for this. a little intimidating at first but quite useful. you have to pay though, as i think you have to pay now for socialoomph. but they let you download a trial version that actually lets you set up autoresponses for new follwers, which is great!

  17. Ayush says

    I used tweet manager for auto post, but it seem that there is some error it’s not posting my tweets…. any body having same issue need help

  18. William Koehne says

    SocialOopmh is misspelled in your story. It is not free. It is almost $8 per month and your article is the first I found out of 6 that like it.

  19. Angie Kannada says

    I’m sorry to report that Twitter DMer does not work. I lost maybe 300 opportunities to connect on a deeper level with potential clients because there was no warning of malfunction. Social Oomph now charges.

    Will be trying TweetManager soon if invited – it is still in private Beta testing.

    Thanks for the info!

  20. Julian says

    Thanks everyone, this is all very helpful.

    Has anyone used tweetspinner? Does it provide the same features (auto DM) and can anyone recommend it? Thanks!

    Also, what tools can you use to send DMs to individually segmented twitter lists?

  21. Victoria says

    Logged in to TwitterDMer, set my custom message and click “enable”, logout, then logged in again and my custom message was not saved, and it seems the service needs to be enabled, how do you use TwitterDMer and what are the signs that it is working? Really need a response here, thanks.

  22. Jamie Calder says

    If you need to use automated tools to send messages to your followers, and DMs no less, perhaps you’re doing it wrong.

    Twitter, and all social media, is supposed to be about social interaction, not flooding your followers with SPAM. Don’t be fooled, this is still SPAM, folks. Just because it’s not email does not make it okay. Spam is the “abuse of electronic messaging systems to send unsolicited bulk messages indiscriminately”.

    But don’t take my word for it. By all means, try one of these tools. Just make sure you keep track of your Twitter follower count along the way so you can watch your numbers plummet.

  23. Jeff Esposito says

    Sorry to say but the premise of this post is awful. Auto-DM’s are as awesome as spam and anyone that I get them from are instantly blocked.

    If you really want to connect with the people who follow you, take the time to make a personal connection. It shouldn’t be below you to respond back to people personally, not like a robot.

    Is the next post how to make $1M on Twitter by following you?

    End of day, there is no quick fix do work, not SPAM.

    • says

      Hey Jeff
      I second your opinion but it’s spam when you are trying to sell anything..By sending a friendly DM when a user follows you, is always work for better connection in future. Though it depends how one is using it.
      This post doesn’t mean to make people spam others, but to make most out of it in good ways.
      Thanks for stopping by and dropping a comment.

  24. eTipsLibrary says

    I was looking for a service like TwitterDMer to auto post custom message to new follower. Thanks Harsh

  25. Jens P. Berget says

    I’m currently not sending any automated messages, but I have been doing it. I did it using TweetAdder. But then I stopped. I didn’t get a lot of clicks from it, and I decided that it wasn’t necessary (without actually doing any analysis of why it’s not necessary).

    But now I’m thinking that if it’s not spam, and it’s all automated, there are no reasons why we shouldn’t send DM’s to new followers.

    I’m curious about SocialOomph, are you using it (and if you are, are you using the pro version?)

    • Gibson Goff says

      Jens, I have been using SocialOomph almost exclusively, and I do send auto DM’s to all new followers. I feel they at least deserve an immediate acknowledgement from me.

      But lately I’ve ran into massive problems with SocialOomph rejecting my tweets, and saying they were duplicates. When I asked support, they stonewalled me – said that they had no control over this, that I should take the query to Twitter. And what a pity that I should be disappointed with their service because of something they can’t control.

      If it’s twitter, and not them, why can I copy the EXACT same tweet, go to tweetdeck (or any other platform) and the tweet goes through, no prob.

      So, SocialOomph may have a nice dashboard, but their customer service folks have their head up their . . . Use at your own risk.

  26. Mani Viswanathan says

    I was looking for such services. TwitterMassDM will be very helpful :P

    Hope HootSuite adds scheduled DM’s soon.!

  27. Jimmy says

    Schedule tweets ! It is a nice feature :-)
    Harsh, u wrote ‘TwitterManager’ in the description , its ‘TweetManager’
