What’s wrong with auto-posts?

ReadWriteWeb posted a really good question on it’s Facebook page today:

What’s wrong with auto-posts?

We’ve all seen them: An automatic Twitter post or Direct Message and is generic and impersonal.

Here are my thoughts on auto-posts:
Anytime you can, you should be engaging in real, authentic, “social” media conversations. Auto-posts for blog entries, or Facebook pages isn’t bad. It gets sticky when you get into auto-replies that are masked as authentic conversations. My rule of tumb: Be real and authentic as much as possible.

What do you guys think? Do you use auto-posts on Twitter? Should people steer clear? Join the conversation.
