@levisan there be dragons -- nasty dragons -- in the smtp network.

@levisan however if you own the server you should be able to setup what you're talking about without even modying the social network service. You need dns entries, an smtp receiving server with spam firewall, and just dump it into a script that checks the social net database for the user to exist, and then just drop it in a DM sending bot.

@progo aha true true! I hadn't given the idea enough time in my head to work that out
