Product Description

Twilert is a Twitter monitoring tool which sends you realtime alerts when someone mentions your brand names, keywords or hashtags on Twitter.

How it works in three simple steps:

1. Select search terms

Choose what you want to search for, this could be a brand name, a keyword or a competitor’s Twitter handle - anything you like really!

2. Filter results

Use the Twilert search filters to narrow down results by language, user or geolocation. View the results in the live preview and experiment with filters until you are happy with the results.

3. Receive alerts

Once you have saved an alert Twilert monitors Twitter for your search terms around the clock. When your search terms are mentioned, Twilert sends you an email alert in realtime or hourly, daily or weekly - however often you need to see them.

Background Information

Twilert was built by digital product agency Codegent at the end of 2008 as part of a client project and was taken over fully by the agency in 2010. The intention had been to create a free Twitter alert service that was funded via advertising (Twilerts get an extremely high open rate) but as the system scaled, sending millions of emails every month, the income soon fell short of the costs. This, alongside Twitter depreciating their V1 API in 2013 and cutting off the current service, meant that Twilert needed to face changes.

After surveying current users, the response was positive enough to deem the product worthwhile to continue with. This led to the release of a new business model in June 2013, which moved Twilert to a paid subscription model, in order to account for a complex rebuild, ongoing customer support and the high monthly running costs. We also added new features such as a searchable tweet history archive, various new scheduling options, more advanced search terms and an email, RSS, Atom or JSON delivery option.

Version 3, released in June 2014, has been designed to further support our growing number of users. We have created a new interface and added features such as improved geolocation search, which allows users to effectively circle the areas or landmarks they wish to monitor.

The new version of Twilert has also integrated with Riffle, a chrome browser extension which will allow Twilert users who have Riffle installed, to access insights on Twitter users with the click of a button.

Version 3 also has an extended 30 day trial period for every user and the option of an Enterprise plan, designed to give maximum flexibility for collaboration across larger companies and agencies.
