When is personal correspondence private?
Recently, I followed someone on Twitter who followed me back and then sent one of the auto-responders that said something like “thanks for following, please check out my site at …” This article isn’t going to be about auto-responders but I don’t like them. I think, “yeah, I checked out your site and your tweets and that’s why I decided to follow you.”
I then sent a direct message back. If you don’t know what that is (and I think most of my readers do) it is a private message on Twitter between two people. I told the person that I liked the design of his site and that it reminded me of an old video game. He replied, “lol, I think”.
