Send Direct Messages to Multiple Users in Twitter
By on February 16th, 2010

Direct messages in are a good way to send out message to people away from the public timeline. However, the problem with direct messages in Twitter is that it only allows you to send a DM to one user at a time. This creates a problem when you want to send out the same direct message to several users, say for example thanking people for wishing you a Happy Birthday.

However, like with everything else, there is a Twitter app called TweetGuru, which allows users to send out direct messages to multiple recipients at once in Twitter.

To send out direct messages to multiple users follow the steps given below:

Step 1: Head over to TweetGuru and click on the "Sign in with Twitter" button and grant TweetGuru access to your account.

Step 2: Once you have authorized Tweet Guru, you will be redirected back to the MultiDM page. To send out DMs to multiple recipients, just enter their Twitter handles separated by a comma.

Step 3: Click on the "Sent Multi DM" button to send out the direct messages to multiple recipients.

Techie Buzz Verdict

MultiDM is definitely a very useful application and will definitely come in handy to send out mass DMs to your followers.  However, right now the number of recipients is limited to 12, but you you can contact the developer to increase the number of recipients to a larger number. Thanks Amit.

  • @stephenrevins

    Useful tip! It seems you have to copy and paste each of your followers (x12) in order to send a multiple DM?

    Keith, I would like to use this multiple DM, but does TwitGuru have Twitter’s permission to do this? They could just shut down or suspend my Twitter account for multiple tweeting. What was your experience?
    Thank you.
