Few weeks ago, Twitter approved our request for getting whitelisted to use their API, so we wouldn't be limited with the standard daily API usage limits.
And, we just activated the Twitter integration for getting the up/down alerts via Twitter DMs (direct messages).
The usage is very simple:
- Follow @uptimerobot Twitter user (so, it can send DMs)
- Go to "My Settings" page
- Under "Add Alert Contacts", click Twitter
- Enter your Twitter user (without @)
- Activate this alert contact by pressing the "play button" inside the table listing your alert contacts
That's it. You'll now be receiving up and down alerts via Twitter.

Good feature, and good timing. Thank you.
Awesome. Thinking of doing a review on 1Wd. Stay tuned.:)
Great to hear that you liked the feature.
That would be lovely.
When I put in my Twitter ID and click add, I get the spinny ajax thingy, but it then goes away and it does not show up in my alert list.
looking for the feature with the sience
Great! And it’s free?
Great, after a lot of waiting, waiting now for the international SMS .
Great work guys keep rocking !!!!
We’re looking into that and will be updating back.
It was due to the account using “protected tweets” and how we handle the friendship status with Twitter.
Rolled a small update and it now works on accounts with “protected tweets” too.
Hi, is all ok, but would be nice if the uptime is reset once a month
Is there a way to get a report of downtime? This feature would be very helpful.
@EricNet & @Dinu
We are working on a reporting/stats module that will enable you to view the stats of a given period and get reports via e-mail.
very thanks 😉
Very very nice work.
Do you plan to add an WebService / API ? Would be so great 🙂
Great feature 🙂 Thanks!
