Twitter search alerts via email with @Twilert

Twilert is back!

I have been using this tool to great effect, allowing me to receive email alerts, against any search words of my choice. Whether you want to  monitor what’s being said about you or your brand or keep an eye on your mentions, hashtags, defined search words on Twitter, this tool could be for you.

Now I said “its back”. This is because it stopped working. As you may have heard Twitter changed its API and effectively cut of access to many great applications out there. Twilert was one. The team have been tireless in rebuilding the tool and launched a revamped version. They also listened and responded to customer requests for enhancements. New features include:

– Realtime alerts
– Twitter search history stored for browsing & searching
– Excluding users from results
– Better Geo searches
– RSS, JSON feeds
– No ads

The new platform is ready to use here: http://www.twilert.com/

Unfortunately given the changes Twilert are unable to offer a completely free service. They do still offer a basic free plan but in order to pay for the hosting and deliver the features customers asked for they are charging a small subscription fee.
