twimailermailIf you’re signed up to get email when someone new follows you on Twitter, you’re probably used to seeing just the tiniest bit of information about them. With only a person’s name and Twitter URL, you’re forced to click through and change focus from your email to Twitter if you want to know more. Twimailer uses a neat workaround to replace Twitter’s new follower emails with its own better version. It generates a unique Twimailer email address that you then paste in as the address for your Twitter account.

New follower emails go through Twimailer, which adds the new follower’s latest few tweets, follower/followed count, Twitter bio, and a button to follow back. These replacement messages are both more visually appealing and more informative than the originals. Although you don’t have to give your password, your email from Twitter is routed through Twimailer. I have no reason not to trust them, but I turned off direct message emails anyway.
