As a social media addict I have been lacking in connecting with my “new ” followers by not sending them messages as soon as they connect with me. Tonight I made a step forward by using a website called twitterdmer.com. This is a free autoDM that sends out a response to new users. I also signed up to SocialOomph as this schedules tweets to be sent at specific times. Optimum timing of your tweets can increase your effectiveness as a contact. Mid-afternoon is often cited as a good time or first thing in the morning. As I can use twitter to connect with my followers in a more interactive way across multiple accounts this is a realistic way to communicate with your hoards of followers!!
