Ames Soccer Club is going mobile!
We have set up a Twitter account, which we will use primarily for weather related announcements, like practice cancellations or field closures. The account is set up to send messages to our Facebook Page and to the widget on the front of our web page. Thus, by us sending the note to Twitter, you'll still be able to see it in all the "old" ways, but you can additionally see the message via Twitter. We know that it is always the case that some people do not receive our text message notifications, so the Twitter message is another alternative way for you to find out.
If you are a new user of Twitter or have not signed up for a Twitter account, you may not know that Twitter can be configured to send you push notifications to your smart phone or texts any time particular accounts send out a message. There are many different Twitter clients out there, so an exhaustive set of instructions is impossible. However, here are two straightforward ways to set this up so you get @amessoccer tweets automatically without having to log into your Twitter app:
- Using Push Notifications and the "official" Twitter app for mobile phones to let you know of @amessoccer tweets
- Having Twitter send you a Text when @amessoccer posts a tweet. (This requires that you tell Twitter your phone number, but it seems to be quite safe.) What you want to do here is "turn on Tweet notifications from a specific person".
