I am not sure about you folks but I find it a little annoying when you follow someone on Twitter, and you get an obviously automatic direct message (which also hits your mail box). This morning alone I had three waiting for me. I am just getting into twitter, so maybe it is something you get used to?
Is it not a form of spam? OK maybe spam is a bit extreme. I signed up to follow Sky News, and this morning I got a thank you with a direct link to their website. It is not enough that I followed them on twitter? They also wish to push their site at me.
It’s just my morning rant, but direct messages should not be automated. Does this bother anyone else, or am I alone here?
