    Ok here is my problem.

    What software do you guys use to send direct messages on Twitter? Which software works best?

    I mean I want to send a direct message to all my followers at once. What is the best way to go automating this?

    get your followers
    Code:
    curl http://twitter.com/followers/ids/YOURTWITTERUSERNAME.xml
    send them a message
    Code:
    curl -u USERNAME:PASS -d "text=THIS IS THE DIRECT MESSAGE&user=THISISTHEUSERIDOFYOURFOLLOWER" http://twitter.com/direct_messages/new.xml

    curl is some sort of command line program, google it. You might need to learn some windows or linux scripting. You might be better off getting an already made program for this stuff anyways, forget I said anything. I forgot what's it called, do a twitter search in the download section and hope for the best

    You can't MSG them all at once thouge, but you can set it up to MSG them once a day or if they start following you.

    I suggest if you're going to be making your own twitter bots ( which is actually very easy to do), that you read up on the twitter API at
    Code:
    http://apiwiki.twitter.com
    This gives you detailed info on all of the API calls, including using cURL to automate your direct messages/follows/whatever
