IMPORTANT UPDATE :
As many of you will soon notice, the SocialOomph website is no longer a free service. I have yet to find a free service to fill the gap for auto-replies as originally outlined in this post. However, my Twitter auto replies are now 100% handled by “TweetAdder“. This is a software that you run on your own computer (Mac or Windows) and you can set automated task to handle all your Twitter needs. I use it to 1) find users and follow them 2) un-follow users who do not follow back after a specific time 3) send out customized tweets to new followers automatically after a certain time. There’s a lot more you can do with the software but I keep it to the above 3 simple tasks.

Firstly, for Non-Twitter Users:
I resisted it at first but now I find that I am a raving fan of Twitter. If you are not using Twitter yet, take my advice and just do it. Even if you don’t plan to Twitter much yet, just register to make sure you grab a user name that’s close to yours. You’ll thank me later for this piece of advice. So go ahead, create a Twitter account for free and “follow” a few active Twitter users to appreciate what it does.
Now for Twitter Users:
Have you ever noticed how when you “follow” certain Twitter users, you will get an immediate reply saying something like “Thanks for following me”. And also, you may find that these users also seem to immediately respond by “following” you too. Do you want to know how to do it too?
Chances are, these user are using a free service from http://www.tweetlater.com
(*Update: Tweetlater has since been renamed “SocialOomph“. The previous link above should still redirect to the new site and the service still works as before.*)
This service allows you to do 3 things:
- Automatically respond to your followers with a personal message
- Automatically “follow” your “followers”
- Submit a Twitter message to be published at a later time
You can also manage multiple Twitter accounts from this site. For example if you have a Twitter Account for yourself and one for your business.
Follow me on Twitter to see a demo of how it works. You’ll get a reciprocal follow from me. :)
