Auto DM or Unwanted Email?
Let's get real for a second. There's nothing fun about receiving unsolicited messages. I asked my friends on Twitter to pick their poison.
What’s worse: An auto DM or an email from a list you haven’t opted into?— Phil Pallen (@philpallen) August 31, 2015

@philpallen - auto DM...especially if it is asking me for a verification that I'm not a bot.— Kevin Mulhare (@KevinMJM1) August 31, 2015
@philpallen auto DM every time. Bc it's feigning an actual conversation. At least email we know is automated.— Shannon Winning (@WinningMediaNJ) August 31, 2015

@philpallen Email. 100%. Do not invade my inbox.— Jillian St. Charles (@JaySaint) September 1, 2015
@philpallen Absolutely the automated DM. Worst is when you get a second with "Hi !"— Tim Waxenfelter (@waxenfelter) August 31, 2015
The verdict: A messy inbox is a tropical vacation compared to robotic Twitter insincerity. Lazy tweeters, consider yourself warned.
What about you? What online marketing no-no makes you want to croak?
