New for Members: Private Twitter Account for News

As an alternative to the email alerts, we've created a private Twitter account (for members) with the latest player news.

The steps to sign up are shown on the alert settings page: https://basketballmonster.com/alerts.aspx

It's not the most efficient process currently so it may take a little while to get approved.

this is great. if you add an option for "watchlist players" it'd be perfect!

Unfortunately, the Tweets are the same for everyone so they won't be unique to your settings.

If you requested a follow, make sure you have submitted your Twitter username here so we can match:

hows the account going to be updated from all the injury news that comes out, does it aggregate from the site ?

There's a single Tweet for each Status Update on the news page (except LOW LEVEL).  Does that answer the question?

Is this different from the email notifications or the same thing but instead of email notification its a tweet?

I keep following on Twitter and entering my name here. Check back in my twitter and the “follow” button goes unselected. Not sure why this keeps happening.

It's probably the Twitter username.  I believe you only need to submit the text after the @ rather than xxx@xxxxx.

Make sure when you add your twitter handle here, you omit the "@"

Great work guys, love it, thanks for adding me. Means I don't have to keep checking the "Fantasy Basketball News" page all day long. One suggestion, can you add the link to the tweet where the info comes from, I occasionally like to see the tweet/source that the info can from which I can do from the "Fantasy Basketball News" page?
