Suggested Replies

For teams focused on excellent customer service and fast response times, using the Advanced plan in Sprout Social will enable automatic suggestions when replying to Twitter users.

Sprout uses machine learning to recommend an appropriate response to commonly asked questions by looking at the previous 90 days or most recent 2,000 messages you've sent from your individual Twitter accounts.

Suggested Replies will show up automatically when responding to a Tweet in Sprout Social. To use a Suggested Reply, click one of the suggestions underneath the compose box. It will populate the compose window with that text, which can then be edited to ensure each response is personalized.


Replies are not saved, but each reply you send from Sprout Social will help the machine learning algorithm correctly suggest relevant replies to similar questions in the future.

When initially connecting a Twitter account, Sprout Social will look through your previous responses to backfill reply data. After an account is connected, however, ensure you and your team reply to Tweets from Sprout Social to ensure your suggestions remain up-to-date and relevant.

Suggested Replies can be toggled off and on by navigating to the Reply section of Sprout's Inbox Settings. You can access this area by going through the Settings_Gear.png and Settings menu at the top right of Sprout or by selecting Rule Settings from the Overflow.png menu in the Smart Inbox.
