How To Stop Twitter Auto DMs
A while ago I held a poll on whether you like or dislike automatic Twitter direct messages, the majority of you dislike them. These are the automated private messages you receive upon following someone. They often include links to their blogs, sites, etc. Sometimes they are created by newbies who don’t realize how annoying they are, more often they are lame “marketing” schemes.
I am very happy to write that both have opt out options now. Kudos to both companies for adding them.
For SocialToo log in and scroll down the page until you see the tick box, tick it (image below).
For TweetLater visit: http://www.tweetlater.com/optout.

I hope this helps.
