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.
