    Default How often do you reply to twitter direct messages?

    It would be interesting to know how we react to twitter direct messages, how often do we reply to them and why or do we neglect them.

    If something is really interesting and isn't spammy then I might reply. More often than not though, I ignore.

    I have replied to a couple but the user never replies back.

    Hint - if you're going to use these forms of marketing, be prepared to reply! If you don't reply people will unfollow etc...

    I currently have 127 direct messages to go through on Twitter.

    Most of them are going to be spam, but I will always go through them once in a while and reply to messages that interest me.

    I always feel so free once I have gone through my DMs!

    I don't get many DM's there (yahooo) When I do I reply if it calls for a reply. I think I may have had 10 or so in the past year.

    Default Twitter

    I run the Twitter account for Global Live Casino and try and always reply.

    There are obviously a lot of people who follow for no reason, and send direct messages that have nothing to do with casino or affiliate programs. But I really think that if you're putting yourself and your brand out there than the point of it is to add another channel of access.

    Also from what I understand people can only Direct Message you if your following them as well, so maybe a good way to cut down on spam is to not follow people who are not related to your vertical.

    Just my thoughts

    I don't think this is correct or else I'm mis-understanding a direct message.

    I only follow a handful of affiliate programmes, but get plenty of @GoonersGuide tweets from my followers ...

    I will only reply if I sincerely think it's a real person without self interest. That's when I will reply. Most of the time I can tell they are generic.

    I do the same... I just hate it when you send a real message to someone and they don't reply.. whats the point of having followers who are interested in what you're saying if you don't care about interacting with them.

    I guess its like support.. You email support for something, they dont reply, you go somewhere else..

    Agreed, but then again I'm not dealing with the mass of messages that a lot of affiliates are getting on top of what they already find in their in boxes every morning

    I never reply! Most of the time I don't even look at them.
