SMS Alerts: Twitter Media Outlines Four Ways to Use Fast Follow

Twitter recently released a feature called Fast Follow, which allows just about anyone with a cellphone to follow specific Twitter users. There is no need to sign up for Twitter, simply text "follow [account]" to 40404 and begin receiving SMS alerts from that account.

To promote the use of Fast Follow, Twitter Media has provided a few ideas for media outlets and local businesses.

It’s perfect for on-air. Instead of directing viewers or listeners to their laptops with a URL, you can send them to their phones with Fast Follow instructions. “Text ‘follow [our account]‘ to 40404″—it’s as simple as that. It’s easier to grok, there’s less friction, and viewers are more likely to have their phones within reach. (And note that by “on-air” I definitely mean radio as well as TV. The Fast Follow call to action works great as a spoken prompt—much smoother than “Twitter-dot-com-slash…”)

It’s perfect for breaking news. This is a medium made for real-time information (remember that stat about most text messages being read within three minutes, above). So an account like @cnnbrk makes tons of sense. What constitutes “breaking news” for your audience? What do they want to know as soon as it happens, wherever they are?

Twitter makes sure to remind us that the text message is a sensitive medium, too many SMS alerts will turn users off. Thinking about user experience, "how many texts does a user want to get in a day? What kind of content works best on phones?" Fast Follow is a powerful feature, but it's important that we remember to use it responsibly.

Shared Experience: O2 Visualizes Texting During World Cup

People are using mobile technology to socialize around events -- before, during, and after -- creating shared experiences. Want proof? UK service provider O2 measured and visualized text message volume around several World Cup games.

During the England - USA game, a total of 23,991,699 messages were sent within O2's network. Volume directly reflects points during the match that were especially exciting. Goals by both teams resulted in peaks of over 3,000 text messages per second.

As NYU's Clay Shirky would say, "media is the connective tissue of society." We see this in live sporting events as well as prime-time television and popular concerts. Services like Hot Potato, GetGlue, and Miso hope to both capture and enhance this conversation as it takes place around all sorts of content.

Pervasive Gaming: Marco Polo Twitter Edition

For Cannes next week, festival goers can participate in a Twitter-based game of Marco Polo. It is meant to keep people updated on popular locations and events.

Anyone who tweets @SapientNitro with #Marco will receive a reply with #Polo and a link that will take them to a microsite featuring a map and five nearby hotspots. The microsite also features a Hot/Cold meter that will show the player how close he or she is to Marco Polo himself.

When someone is "hot" enough, they will be sent a photograph of a person to tackle and receive a free iPad. It is a creative use of Twitter, bridging the classic game of Marco Polo into a digital world.
