    Broadcasting a Direct Message on Twitter?

    Does anyone know whether it's possible to broadcast a direct message to all followers on Twitter, using wild cards or equivalent?

    I would not recommend sending a DM to your entire Twitter follower posse. It's considered poor etiquette generally. Just sayin' after being active on Twitter for several years.

      The problem is I would like to say the same thing to everyone. If I tweet the message, it gets lost in everyone's feed. If the message is the equivalent of an e-mail BCC, why should there be an issue?

    Yeah, I'm not sure why you'd want to do that. That's in pretty poor taste.

    My followers are mostly hard skinned  males, and I don't think etiquette bothers them too much (hope they don't read this!)

      Sorry, totally misunderstood your question. I thought you wanted to broadcast a DM that someone had sent to you. My brain is a bit mushy today. How many followers do you have? Might be worth it to personalize each one a bit if not too much hassle.

      I have about 760 followers. I just want to let them know they can follow me on FaceBook  (most of them seem to also have FaceBook and Google+ accounts)
