Some 93,800 people follow @DansDeals on Twitter and many of those receive text messages whenever a new deal is posted. You’ll need to have the fastest finger to get the best deals with that kind of competition!

You can read this post for how to enable those alerts.

Sometimes though, Twitter mysteriously just stops sending out text messages:

 

Here’s how to re-enable them.

Step 1: Unfollow @DansDeals by clicking on the blue following button:

 

Step 2: Delete your phone number from Twitter on this page:

 

Step 3: Add your phone number back again:

 

Step 4: Click here to customize SMS messages.
You’ll need to verify your cell phone number.
Then be sure to check “Tweets from people you’ve enabled for mobile notifications.”
If you don’t want to be bothered at night then also be sure to turn off updates during any hours that you can specify.
Be sure to click to save these changes to your account.

Step 5: Click here to go to the @DansDeals page. Click on the follow button and then click on the 3 vertical dots next to the follow button and click on “turn on mobile notifications” in order to get a text message whenever there’s a new deal posted on DansDeals.com

 

You can also receive deal alerts from the Twitter app, via in-browser push notifications, and via Telegram notifications.

A daily digest of deals is also available via Whatsapp here or by entering your email address into the Daily Email Digest signup in the right sidebar on the DansDeals desktop site.

I stopped getting them months ago. I just text Follow every morning and I’m good.

You might reconsider. Some of the hottest deals last only a few hours, some even minutes. If you wait till the next morning, the train may have already left the station.

The FOLLOW command is no longer supported. For an updated list of supported Twitter SMS commands, see

Is there any way to reactivate without online access to twitter?

you can have someone sign you up once, and then you can tweak the settings from your cell via txt

Done, thanks for the walkthrough…
If one has the twitter app with notifications, does that work as fast?
Or is this primarily for people with non-smartphones?

Brian

I’m getting different menus and messages than you show. Does this need to be done on a desktop rather than on a phone?

Does this have to be done on a desktop? It doesn’t seem to be working on my phone
