Not a secret that one of the most effective way to gain Twitter followers is to follow other people. If you do this already, you probably noticed that you get a lot of Direct Messages from people you recently followed. And most of these DM’s are clearly automated and sent to all new followers. And once we realise that message is not personal, we tend to ignore it, right? But there are few reasons why you shouldn’t. You can make these DM’s work for your own advantage.
