Nokia Tweetsender notifies you of software updates via Twitter DM

Published by at

Nokia has introduced a new service, Tweetsender, that will send you a Direct Message (DM) on Twitter when a "cool new app or new software update" is available for your phone. In order to use the service you will need to be following @nokia on Twitter (so you can be sent DMs) and specify which handset, and which market, you want to receive notifications for by signing up to the Tweetsender service here.

Once you have signed up to the Tweetsender service you can use the dashboard to manage your handsets, allowing you to sign up to receive alerts for multiple devices, should you so wish. If you no longer want to receive alerts, you can also use the dashboard to unsubscribe from the service.

 It's worth noting that, in some markets, Twitter will let you configure your account to recieve DMs by SMS. Combing this feature with Tweetsender means you'll get a text message when a software update is available for your device.

Here is Nokia explanation of the service:

The idea is quite simple: If you’re a Nokia phone user who follows us on Twitter you probably want to find out about the latest updates, apps etc. for your Nokia phone, but tweets are fleeting and if we only tweet once or twice about a software update then you’ll probably miss it… So we decided to create an app that allows you to sign up for DMs from our @Nokia Twitter account when a cool new app or new software update comes out for your phone.

We’re pretty excited about this tool. We think we are the first mobile manufacturer to offer a service like this and we really hope it helps you folk, our followers, to get more out of following us on Twitter.
