Want Text Message Alerts for Announcements?

Want Text Message Alerts for Announcements?

Although Twitter is great for keeping track of commentary from various sources, most followers cannot be glued to their screen all of the time to find out about announcements, impromptu chats and new videos or other events. For this reason and based on several requests, I have created a text messaging (SMS) alert that can be used by anyone who wants to know when that next after-market or night-time chat will take place.

I have created a video with clear instructions on how to first get a twitter account and then how to set up alerts for important events.

    Is there, or can there be, a back up method for the Text Message alerts for followers living in areas where Twiiter doesn’t offer the facility? For example, Twitter doesn’t currently offer the facility for Hong Kong. Thanks.

    Yahoo Messenger is an App and is free and easy and would allow those of us outside the US to receive text messages.

      The problem with using Yahoo Messenger is that it becomes yet another place I have to update. I will find another solution.
