    Title says it all, if I DM'ed every new follower a personalized message with a unique link in it do we think my account would get banned?

    I don't think so...I get messages all day when I follow people telling me to check out a page or somethin like that. Their might be a limit to how many you can send a day tho.

    Technically the limit is 250 a day, but after reading every thread I could find online about what lead to people being banned, i've come to the conclusion that automating DM's is a bad idea if you're posting aggressive followback numbers.

    Just read an article too from someone who did a test to measure follower retention based on dm's, user specific response tweets (can't type at symbol here), no response, etc when someone followed them... and they came to the conclusion that a DM when someone follows has no value whatsoever. Your following them back if not already does, though... greatly.
