How to Get Notifications When Your Favorite People Tweet

How to Get Notifications When Your Favorite People Tweet

How_to_Get_Notifications_When_Your_Favorite_People_Tweet-lsget instant notifications when people tweetWouldn't you love to get notified when your favorite people tweet?

Today I'll show you 2 awesome tools that can make that happen.

Once you set them up, you'll be able to quickly respond to your favorite people's tweets -- and start building relationships with the top influencers on Twitter.

And after a few exchanges, you'll probably be emailing them about your awesome product! :)

People are just more likely to respond to you when you quickly reply to their tweets.

>> Click to Tweet <<

You can also use these tools to track your competition on Twitter -- which can be tricky with other tools.

I once used Twitter’s iOS app to receive push notifications when somebody tweeted, but the app often notified me of tweets from people I wasn't interested in hearing from.

I've FINALLY found a solution!

How to Get Notifications When Your Favorite People Tweet

Here's what you'll need to get started:

Download & register your Pushover account.

Here are the steps for setting up Zapier:

1. Register account & log in

2. Visit this link & click "Start Using This!"

get-notifications

3. Set the default to "User Tweet" and "Push Notification" (so you'll be notified when somebody tweets)

4. Click "Continue"

get-notifications

5. Choose "Select a Twitter account" & test it before moving on

get-notifications

6. Connect Zapier to your Pushover account

7. Log into Pushover & copy your user key

get-notifications

Your user key will look like this:

get-notifications

8. Enter a Twitter user you'd like to get notifications from

get-notifications

9. Customize your filter

Select "in_reply_to_user_id_str" and "Does not exist" -- as shown above.

This way you'll receive only tweets -- no replies.

10. Click "Insert fields" and "Text" -- then click Continue

get-notifications

11. Use the "Test Zap with this sample" feature to make sure you did everything right

You should receive a notification on your mobile device.

Name the Zap

This is the last step. Call the Zap whatever you want -- something cool like:

  • Project Sauron
  • Project Notify
  • Project Tweet
  • Project Hubble

Turn Zapier on & you're all set. Well done!

The app searches for updates every 15 minutes & notifies you when someone tweets.

Now when @PostPlanner publishes a new tweet, I'll receive a notification like this:

Remember, you can't reply from Zapier. So you'll need a different app to respond to the tweets.

Your Turn

Do you know of other apps that do similar things?

I'd love to hear about them!
