For $3 a month (with my mobile provider) I can send/receive unlimited email, so emailing Twitter from my mobile phone email is on the cheap.
The only problem is getting updates, it’s just not the same as the multitude of IM commands.
I’ve attempted to use FeedBlitz for a daily digest, but this isn’t working at the moment…why is that FeedBlitz, the test works.
The reason I want a digest is that I don’t want a new email for every new post made by people I follow, I’d be getting hundreds of emails a day.
FeedBlitz offer a daily digest for free, but you have to pay for more frequent digests.
So I’m looking to get my Twitter RSS feed converted to email, eg. Rmail, FeedBlitz, and others…but I want a free digest of posts about every 2 hours.
Sounds simple enough.
email on demand
Even better would be email on demand.
How about when ever I feel, I can send an email to Twitter (or a Twitter hack) asking for the updates of the last hour, 2 hours, 3 hours, 6 hours, 24 hours, etc…
Twitter will reply by sending me an immediate email with the latest updates from the time period I’ve requested.
NOTE: when you post using mail2twitter, you get a reply email stating your Tweet was successful. As mentioned above I want the same process for receiving updates.
This very thing happens with Gubb, as well as posting updates to your list, you can also receive the status of your current list.
To retrieve one of your lists by email, you simply send a blank email and it will trigger a reply email with the content of your list.
Then the next message would be, can I receive a Direct Message via email?
Can I send a Direct Message with mail2twitter?
Can I send a Whois with mail2twitter?
…and the rest of the commands.
