I just uploaded Tweet Beeper to Google App Engine. It’s a simple application that receives an email, and then converts the subject line into a twitter direct message (which in turn can be an SMS sent to the recipients phone). A little whimsical, I know, but the weather was fairly average here this weekend!
TweetBeeper in 1 Minute
How do I use it? Easy!
- Follow @TweetBeeper on Twitter.
- Send a subject-line email to:
your-twitter-id [at] tweetbeeper.appspotmail.com
What can it do?
- Cron Job Output to Direct Messages
- Webstore monitor failures to SMS
- Magento Sale notification emails (or any store)
- … and any other situations where email to SMS would be handy
