Using Twitter Alerts to get Notifications

posted Dec 20, 2016, 6:08 AM by Jeffrey Jones   [ updated Dec 20, 2016, 6:14 AM ]

You can use Twitter notifications to get texts or emails when a particular account tweets something.

Here is how...

Copy the URL (Example: https://twitter.com/LaneyHSNews) 
(Click on the Website address so it turns blue > 'right click' & select 'copy')


Find 'Settings' (finding it may differ according to what browser or what operating system you are using)
At school using Chrome - Click on the 'Bell'/'Notifications' at the top left

Under the 'Search' field, look for 'Settings' 

If you want 'Texts', click on 'Mobile' (above 'Notifications) >

Check the box that says, 'Tweets from people you've enabled for mobile notifications'.
(NOTE: you can only receive text notifications from ONE account - the most recently linked one using your smartphone.)

If you don't want them during the night, etc. adjust the 'Sleep settings'

Click on 'Save changes'
