    I found a sweet way in my journeys today for sending Direct Messages on Twitter.I'm most of you already knows this,but for those who don't,here you go.

    To send a DM to a non-follower in Twitter,you have to ?derive? their DM URL to create a DM message. Here?s the syntax

    Code:
    http://twitter.com/direct_messages/create/<twitter username>
    Here, you have to replace the <twitter username> with the twitter id of the person to whom you wish to send the DM. For example, to send a DM to me, you would use the following link

    Code:
    http://twitter.com/direct_messages/create/BON8699
    If this is useful hit the thanks.

    Other than logging into Twitter and posting an update?

    Are you looking for something in URL form? I don't think a URL posting to all followers exists. I'm sure a program coudl be hacked together using the Twitter API.

    Maybe I'm not understanding the request... ?

    i was thinking of an online service to do this, or something like sending a message to all new followers , that would be good too
    anyway the direct message link is working and i was thinking of a script that list all your followers, then add each of them at the end of the dm link and send them a predefined message

    it works, but you need to supply post data. twitter has info about this in their api.

    BUMP.

    That one's been patched for a while (at least a couple of months).

    What's the newest way, does anybody know?

    I don't personally think anyone reads DM's if you're adding people you get too many to keep up with. I only read @ replies.
