Do you need to stay connected to the fellowship more? NOW YOU CAN !!

Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read messages known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters displayed on the author's profile page and delivered to the author's subscribers who are known as followers. Twitter is ranked as one of the 50 most popular websites worldwide. Wikipedia

What is a short code?
Short codes are numbers made specifically for SMS (text) messages. Twitter uses various short codes to send and receive your updates. Sending a text message to a short code is just like sending a text message to a phone number. Short codes are made specifically for text messaging, so you can't send an email to a short code, or call a short code. Charges for using our short codes are the same as standard text messaging rates to full-length phone numbers. Long codes are also text only, but they're the length of a standard phone number instead of being shortened.

What is Twitter's short code?
We currently support 2-way (sending and receiving) Twitter SMS via short codes US: 40404

Setup Instructions:

Twitter is very easy! If you can send an email, you can "tweet". Basically, what twitter has done is combine the online chatroom in real time to your cell phone or PDA using SMS/text messaging.

If you are ready for this modern form of social networking and like technology, you are going to love twitter. Plus, it is a great “TOOL” for helping you stay sober. ODAAT – One Day At A Time, OHAAT – One Hour At A Time, OMAAT – One Minute At A Time, and perhaps OSAAT – One Second At A Time. Remember, a look is faster than a blink.

It is very exciting and we hope more people join. Visit our Central Website. Once you create an account, you can decide who you want to follow and start getting messages immediately.

We recommend that you turn on "Protect my tweets" -- Your tweets are currently protected; only those you approve will receive your tweets. You will not appear on the public timeline. Tweets posted previously may still be publicly visible in some places.

Getting to know Twitter:

What is it?
Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent messages. People write short updates, often called "tweets" of 140 characters or fewer. These messages are posted to your profile or your blog, sent to your followers, and are searchable on Twitter search.

Do I need anything special to use it?
All you need to use Twitter is an internet connection or a mobile phone. Join us here! Once you're in, type your first update into the web box. To get an idea of what other people are saying or doing on Twitter, check out Twitter search to see what Twitter's all about. You can search by keyword or just check out the trending topics to what's hot on Twitter right now.

How do I find my friends?
When you create an account, you can search for people by name or user name, import friends from other networks, or invite friends via email. If you don't want to do that, follow some of the people we've suggested. Once you've found your friends, follow them to start getting their updates.

What does it mean to follow someone on Twitter?
Following someone simply means receiving their Twitter updates. When you follow someone, every time they post a new message, it will appear in your Twitter home page. New messages are added to your home page as people post them, so you always get the updates in real time. When you log in, you can see what the latest updates are. Twitter offers other ways to follow people too: you can get updates from certain people on your phone!

Do I have to use an iPhone to use Twitter with my phone?
No! Any phone that can send and receive text messages to a short code can use Twitter. iPhones and other phones with extensive mobile web features can be also be used but Twitter works with all phones!

a specific person on your phone. Example: follow jeremy
LEAVE username: this command allows you to stop receiving notifications for a
specific person on your phone. Example: leave benfu

Fun Stuff: friends, favorites, and stats!
There's more to Twitter than OFF and ON! Use the commands below to send private
messages, mark updates as favorites, or even remind someone to update their
Twitter page if you're wondering what they're doing!

@username + message
directs a twitter at another person, and causes your twitter to save in their
"replies" tab.
Example: @meangrape I love that song too!

D username + message
sends a person a private message that goes to their device, and saves in their
web archive.
Example: d krissy want to pick a Jamba Juice for me while you're there?

WHOIS username
retrieves the profile information for any public user on Twitter.
Example: whois jack

GET username
retrieves the latest Twitter update posted by the person.
Example: get goldman

NUDGE username
reminds a friend to update by asking what they're doing on your behalf.
Example: nudge biz

FAV username
marks a person's last twitter as a favorite. (hint: reply to any update with
FAV to mark it as a favorite if you're receiving it in real time)
Example: fav al3x
STATS this command returns your number of followers, how many people you're
following, and your bio information.

INVITE phone number
will send an SMS invite to a friend's mobile phone.
Example: Invite 415 555 1212

Noteworthy Facts
using on/off username from your phone only stops notifications to the place
the command comes from; you'll still collect a person's updates on the web.
using follow/leave username from your phone is the same as using on/off
username
following someone from a phone for the first time will also cause you to
follow them on the web
there is no way to stop following a person on the web without visiting their
profile and removing them. The off, leave, stop, and quit commands will only
disable updates for the device(s) from which they were sent.
you don't have to use ON/OFF username from the phone, you can also set
individual notifcations from a person's profile page, or check your following
page and manage all phone notification settings there.

FAQs

I haven’t setup my phone, but I thought I could still use the internet?
Yes, u can. I am not on the computer often, though (due to our common problem). I will be sending tweets via my phone and can receive yours as well. If you set yours up to receive text messages, then it will be a constant accountability tool, rather than just when the individual is sitting at the computer.

Have u set up your cell phone on twitter? If not, you go to settings and put your number under the "Device" tab. Also, if you want to receive tweets from other users on your phone, be sure to click the cell phone icon next to their name individually, otherwise, you will only be able to send status updates but not receive those of others.

Let us know if you need any additional help. Email: twitter@saphonemeeting.org
