I've been growing an old Twitter account with Follow Liker for the past 3 months. It's around 3 years old and has 7150 followers. I personally hate people using automated "welcome" direct messages (DM)... but I heard that it could be somewhat useful without affecting the follow-back ratio. I just started an experiment. I activated the automated welcome DM without changing my other settings. The auto message is non spammy, friendly, and asks people to check out my Facebook page. I've been recording all my account data, so it'll be pretty easy to see if there is a significant change. 1â€” Will my follow-back ratio drop because people hate auto DM? 2â€” Will it increase my like ratio because it actually works? I'll run this for a couple of weeks and report later with the results. My current stats â€” Twitter new follows (daily, average): 104.09 â€” Twitter follow-back ratio (daily, average): 21.04% â€” Facebook net likes (weekly): between 10 and 25, but as low as 5 (not kidding) â€” Twitter automatic direct messages to new followers: 0 YES, my Facebook performance absolutely SUCKS. I don't promote this page. The new likes are so low and random that calculating an average would be pretty useless.
