Twilert – A Twitter Monitoring Tool

Twilert is a Twitter monitoring tool that sends you realtime email alerts when your brand names, keywords or hashtags are mentioned 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.
