TIP: How to have twitter send out emails - FAQ

Postby 07outback » Thu Jun 05, 2014 1:49 pm

It would be nice if viewers could subscribe to your team(s), and when the scorer starts to score a game that is being broadcast the subscribers receive an automatic email with the URL to watch the game. Because when a game starts it is difficult to send out the emails letting everyone know as you are trying to score.

If you turn on Twittercast, a tweet will automatically be sent when you begin scoring a game. If you use "ifttt.com", you can set it up so when a start game tweet is received from a twitter account, it can automatically send emails to anyone you like.

I'd love to see an example of how to set up this ifttt "recipe". I'd also like to be able to include the mobile iscorecast in the tweet & email.

With ifttt, you can use If Twitter (New Link by You, or New Tweet by You), then Send Email, and select the recipient.

When setting up the email that is sent, you can add your own freeform text, so you could add http://iscorecast.com/html.php into the body of the email as well.

I have turned on TwitterCast and immediately get notifed on my Twitter account with the link. Then I loaded ifttt, but can only get it to send an email to me. How do I add extra email receipients to ifttt list to send to?

If it is not allowing entry of multiple recipients, you can use a free "group email" address that will forward the email on to a group of people (Google Groups for example).

IFTTT has been fantastic. We've set up a groupme for the parents on team. When we start the game it goes on Twitter, which then runs the recipe to post to groupme. All the parents get the link

It would be nice if folks could explain in more detail IFTTT and groupme setup and use

( translation ... I hear kids talk about groupme and Iftt mentioned here .. But this old dog does not understand either and how they can be of use )
