MentionNotifier – Get Your Twitter Mentions Via Email

Tired of adding ego feeds to your RSS Reader? Want to keep track of when you’re mentioned on Twitter? MentionNotifier is the perfect solution!

MentionNotifier will check Twitter every minute of the day for mentions of your Twitter handle. It even supports hashtag notifications. Simply enter your Twitter username (or keyword that you’d like notifications for), and enter in the email address you’d like MentionNotifier to send alerts too. You can enter multiple email addresses, which is great for group alerts on specific keywords.

Via the email alerts you can manage your subscriptions, which will look like the image below.

Note: Protected tweets will not show up as they are not part of the public timeline which MentionNotifier uses to scan for your subscriptions.

  1. You can use standard twitter search syntax like from:timhibbard I haven’t made that feature real-time, but it’s pretty close. It checks every 30 seconds.

  2. Is it possible to use this to get all tweets by a user forwarded to your inbox in real time?

  3. I actually just changed it a couple days ago to use the Streaming API, allowing for real-time notifications. When somebody mentions you in a tweet, it shows up in a matter of seconds to your inbox or phone.
