What is a Tweet Drip?

Drip marketing is a way of scheduling messages or content to be sent to your followers or subscribers on a set schedule or triggered after specific events. Tweet Drips allow you to set up a schedule of direct messages that will be sent to people that follow you.

For example, you can set up a welcome message that is sent on the 1st day. Then, have a follow-up message sent 7 days later, and so on.

Tweet Drip campaign list

To create a new drip, you'll need to enter the text you would like sent in a direct message to each of your followers. This message will only be sent to new followers (not existing ones).

Next, you'll need to select on which day to send the direct message. Selecting 0 will send the message the same day that they follow you. Selecting 3 will send the message 3 days after they follow you, and so on.

Why are my direct messages not sending?

A few things could impact your ability to send direct messages:

  • Twitter limits the total number of direct messages any account can send to 250 per day.
  • If your account uses other tools to make API calls on your behalf, it's possible you've temporarily hit your API rate limit. This will eventually resolve itself and should start working again.
  • Occasionally, our service might get delayed by a few hours or a day. We will eventually catch up and sending will be resumed.

Can I cancel my account any time?

Yes. Simply visit your "My Accounts" page and downgrade to free any time.
