    is there an app that will allow you to send a direct message to everyone that's following you in twitter?

    If so, is it safe to use or could it cause you to get banned.

    I'm wanting to convert my twitter followers over to my email list by offering them something to optin to my list.

    thanks

    if they are your followers just update your status with something like
    Code:
    "Click here to get (what ever you are offering)"
    link it to a landing page with opt-in form and say something like:

    Code:
    "to get ("what ever you are offering") enter your email ."
    now anyone who follows you will see that update on there twitter.
    that's the whole point of following someone
    and to make sure more of them will see that , update your status ever 6 hours.

    man you just gave me an idea :)

    I noticed that when I send a tweet I only get less than 1/2 of 1% to respond so a direct message would be better and get more of them to optin, but I have a large twitter list and cannot manually respond to them, it would take days to do that

    i'm gonna see about getting a program written to direct respond with an random time interval in it.
