That sounds right, it was a tweet from the end of May. Not sure why Zapier would pick that one rather than the more recent test one, but it sounds like you're on the right track!

One thing to note is that services like Zapier will only check for new tweets every 15 minutes or so, so you won't get alerts instantly. The Twitter app push notifications will be quicker (assuming a good network connection) so it's worth having both. SMS for if the data connection is struggling, and push notifications for speed (if the connection is good).

Ah, I have indeed got today's Testing message too. I just didn't realise that was from secretGlasto, I thought it was a generic Zapier test.

We can probably afford to do more test tweets this time, Zapier has a monthly quota of 100 and given that we only sent about 25-30 tweets in the 2019 festival, we're not in danger of busting the limits.

Could we we have another test towards the end of the week?

It’s gonna not really be much of a secret now though … can’t believe ( well I can ) the number of followers the twitter account has

I couldn’t get zapier to send the pin as an SMS. Does anyone know if it takes a tometo come through? 

I think you have to enter your mobile number with the international code - +44 (for UK) instead of 0

Still works if you take an old-skool Nokia burner phone .

what advantages does the text alert have over a twitter push notification?

Yep, also if you are on max battery saving on a smartphone most apps (inc Twitter) won't work, but sms will still come through

I thought the account had 40k followers in 2019, might have made that up. 35k now.

Maybe …. Considering most will likely tell a few people it’s still quite significant numbers 🙂

I suppose it depends on how many of the 35k are at this years festival. Some might have followed years ago or just out of interest
