Using Hot Deals View Alerts with Twitter

April 13, 2009 | Posted By: Troy Redington
Our new functionality offers you the ability to create a custom Hot Deals view and subscribe to it via twitter.

Here's how it works. Create a custom view in our hot deals forum by narrowing down the topics by category and clicking the "Save Current View" button (bottom left). Name your view. Now click the "Subscribe to view" button (right below the save view button).

Once you've subscribed, you can go to the view alerts admin page. Click the link to set up your twitter account.

Make sure that you're following @fatwallet, we'll send you a DM on twitter to confirm your account. Once confirmed, you can click the twitter checkbox on the view alerts admin page to receive updates from the @fatwallet account on twitter whenever new deals are posted that fit your custom view criteria.

Let us know what you think, and how we can improve it in ANY way! Thanks!

You should probably re-order things so that 'set up your twitter account' appears ahead of everything else . . . you can't set up the alert until after you are following and have subscribed and pinged/confirmed your account.

I did get it to work . . . and LOVE the way you guys are utilizing Twitter!
