How To Opt Out Of Annoying Twitter Auto DMs


I know your auto DMs are probably great but there are many who didn’t get the memo. It doesn’t take long to get sick of auto DMs. I want my direct messages to actually be messages rather than needing to trawl through dozens of “friendly” sales messages. No, I wont buy into your MLM scam!

Good news! Although there are many services that will provide you with and Auto DM there are two that make up nearly 90% of DMs sent, and you can opt-out of them both! This means your twitter account will never receive Auto DMs from these two services.


SocialOomph is great service but too many muppets have caught on. If you want a service that can schedule your tweets and gives you better control I recommend you check it out. However if you want to opt out of the DM’s that get sent from socialoomph, here’s how:

1) Follow¬†@OptMeOut on twitter, they’ll follow back within the hour.

2) Once they follow you back, send them a DM (with anything in it).

3) You’ll will receive an opt-out confirmation DM.

4) You have opted out! You can now unfollow OptMeOut.

If you ever change your mind about opting out just send a message to the Help Desk asking to be removed from the opt-out list.

Social Too

Social Too is a tool for Auto DMs, follows and unfollows. Like SocialOomph they also give you the opportunity to opt out of their auto DMs. 2 simple steps:

1) Sign up for Social Too

2) Tick the box below in the Preferences tab.



Congrats, you have now opted out! Expect to receive at least 90% less Auto DMs.
