From booth #1450 at EDUCAUSE 2008. Omnilert is now integrated with Twitter. This enables Omnilert clients to push Omnilert alerts automatically and simultaneously to their school’s Twitter account without having to login into their Twitter account separately. Students who follow their school’s Twitter would then receive alerts through Twitter without ever having to sign up for Omnilert.
“Using technology that is most relevant to your students is the best way to reach them quickly,” stated Nick Gustavsson, Chief Technology Officer of Omnilert, LLC. “All the school has to do is add the free Twitter utility to their Omnilert account and then publish their Twitter name so students can follow it to receive alerts.”
