If I would get the Twitter app or allow it on my browser. Would anyone know if there’s a way to allow only specific accounts? I was told years  ago by someone at TAG that it’s not possible, has anything changed recently?

Hi everyone  :)
For “kosher” smartphone users: I don’t want to encourage anyone to download the Twitter app, but here’s an idea I had:
Sign up for another account and download the app. Follow whatever accounts you’d like to receive notifications from and allow push notifications. Then have someone else change the password (or do half the password and your spouse half) so you can’t access the actual app but you’ll continue to receive the notifications.
Anyone see a flaw with that plan?

I was wondering how much it would cost for someone to build an app similar to Twitter

How difficult is it to reset the twitter password if you have access to the email address on the account?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Have the same other person listed as the account email?

Yes. And the messages are often delayed

Thought so, but what about the text services that all the schools use. I can't imagine those all cost as much as the ones above make it sound.

These schools probably don't have 20,000 subscribers, that's what makes it so expensive. And I hope they're not sending 400 messages/month

It got worse. You used to be able to allow specific accounts and specific pages. With Gentech, you were allowed to request certain pages opened. For a while now, Twitter requires twitter.com enabled to do pretty much anything—especially viewing pages with media content.

Does anyone have a twitter account and a zapier account and want to try this?
It doesn't say 'instant' next to twitter but maybe it'll be close enough? (zapier can run every 5 minutes on the paid version)



Otherwise a developer might be able to set up a webhook to zapier which is instant

What about dansdeals should get an email server and send emails for each post? & It will also have the option to send as text for example 3479999999@vtext.com?
@Dan what about this can be done from gmail too it’s definitely a temporary fix until you get some hot tech involved

This cannot be done from Gmail, regular Gmail accounts have a 500 emails a day limit, & gsuite has a 2000 limit, even if it will work it will definitely get stopped by Google.
It can be done from a Gmail address, but you need your own server, it can't be done from the Gmail interface.

How do all organization/companies blast emails?
Doesn’t dan do a daily email?
