Twitter ahoy!

Have you ever wanted to tell people about something that’s going on RIGHT NOW in Auckland from your mobile phone? And at the same time receive updates to your phone from other people? ¬†Well, thanks to Twitter and the lovely Brenda from Wellington, we now have an Aucklandista twitterbot up and running! So if you haven’t already got a twitter account, get one, and sign up to follow it. Once the bot is following you back, you can update the bot by prefixing any twitter messages with 09.You can use the bot to talk about whatever kind of Auckland events that you like. Some suggestions for the kinds of messages you might like to send out include:

  • 09 The motorway is jampacked today because of a crash. Go a different way.
  • 09 There’s someone giving out ice creams in Aotea Square
  • 09 There’s an awesome gig on tonight at the King’s Arms
  • 09 OMG Joss Whedon is at Burger King Queen Street right now.

Etc. Please feel free to ask any questions and we hope you enjoy the bot.
