Keene 411 v 2.0 - Activist TXT Msg Distribution Service
« on: December 20, 2011, 02:41:29 AM »
Keene 411 is like an SMS party line. You send a text to a phone number and the message is blasted out to an unlimited number of activists' phones. Here are step-by-step instructions for signing up:

   1. TXT "Follow @411Keene" to 40404 - follow the instructions provided.

OR, using your computer:

   1. Create a Twitter account and verify your email, or have your user name and password handy.
   2. Complete these quick phone setup steps in your Twitter settings.
   3. Go to twitter.com/411Keene and click follow.
   4. You should see a green box with two arrows and a lighter box with a phone. Click the phone (it should turn green).
   5. To send out a Keene411, send an SMS text message of no more than 140 characters to 302-41-KEENE (302-415-3363). (You may send txts to this number from any phone, regardless of whether is is signed up for Keene411.)  Please remember to sign your txts, so we know who is sending them.

 This information will always be available in the top "TOOLS" menu of Free Keene and via this shortcut: 411.freekeene.com.

As of the end of 2011, Keene 411 version 2.0 is now active.  If you were a subscriber to the old Keene 411 (347-603-0411 and @Keene411), then you'll need to use the new number 302-41-KEENE (302-415-3363), and follow the new Twitter, @411Keene.  When you are ready, you probably will want to remove the old Keene 411 from your phone and Twitter as we have no way of shutting it down.

Steve, does texting that walk someone through the whole signup process?  Do you think I should replace the instructions with that?

Can this be used for msg distribution in another area other than Keene?  I am looking to set up something that functions the way this works.

Yep.  It's a google voice number linked to a twitter account.

Don't have unlimited texting?  If you have a smartphone you can get push notifications from the twitter app rather than receive SMS.  Instructions on how are here: https://support.twitter.com/articles/20169887-enabling-mobile-notifications
