    I really don't know how it works and I'm usually skeptical of fads like this but I'm imagining that it would allow Fosh to send a text message to all of us? Like if we're subscribed does it actually text us or do we have to check on it?

    In the case of week 14 where we wanna let people recruit but still advance quickly after that... could this be an option for us?

    I think you have to actually log onto a twitter client to receive the updates.

    This forum is capable of RSS feeds though. I think you can subscribe to a thread using them. Most new phones allow you to set them up to receive subscribed RSS feeds.

    A better idea would be for everyone to just give Fosh their cell # and have him send out a text, though. I suggested it to my group, but they decided to just stick with the advancement threads.

    I gotta assume, at this point, everyone in the league has access to their email 24/7, be it thru Blackberry, Iphone, or just regulary checking it all the time. I think that might be the best option. That way Foshe can set up a distribution group. Send a quick "advanced to week ___" email and be done with it.

    twitter can be set up where it will send an SMS message to ANY cell phone that can recieve SMS/text messages. You jus have to follow the person then set an option to text your phone when they post an update

    fuck twitter. fuck it in its stupid face.

    if we wanted to an email distribution list would probably be best.

    another option is to setup an RSS stream for a subforum only Fosh can post to, and then all of us can set it up so we get the RSS emailed to us.

    The all-time topper has to be you sending me the repeated chat requests last night while I was getting torched by Georgia Tech.

    Good stuff.

    It would have been sweet if Helli tweeted some play by play from that Georgia Tech game.

    wouldn't have been much. i wasn't angry. I was sort of staring in disbelief the whole time. I was playing in slow motion. Kind of sad. The next day my wife (who went to bed right as the game started) asked me what the score was. She knew I hadn't lost to one of you fags in a long time. When I told her the score she was like "Wow.... and I didn't even hear you yelling and hitting things."

    I explained that it's cuz I didn't and she just laughed.

    twitter can text you if you want it to. Just have to tell it that it's okay and let it know which tweets you want sent to you immediately.

    But an email would be nice for me as during the week I am only on early in the morning and late at night and I tend to miss stuff.
