How to stop AutoDMs (almost completely!)

I’ve found a really neat way to stop Auto DMs.

Or at least, drop them from however many billions a day down to just a couple.

Yep! Direct Messaging will finally be useful again! Yay!

Here’s the trick:

  1. Follow @optmeout
  2. Wait till @optmeout follows you back (won’t be long)
  3. Send @optmeout a DM (anything, it doesn’t matter)
  4. Then you can unfollow @optmeout any time you like

What does this do?

@optmeout is run by TweetLater (now called Social Oomph). Well, guess where the vast majority of the auto DMs are coming from? That’s right. Social Oomph users. By opting out, no Social Oomph user will auto dm you.

I never knew just how many of them there were, but boy, this has made DMing fun again! Try it, you’ll like it!
