I've found sending a message to twitter to be completely unintuitive though. I had to send something to 'twitter', typing it out without any sort of hint that I was doing it correctly. Then minutes later, I get a Notifo message that it tweeted. Which I just did myself, via the same device.
*it reads your phone's addressbook and displays all contacts that also have whatsapp, probably based on telephone number
We've been chatting internally about such an onboarding process.

It's more of a proof-of-concept for anyone to built bots. We'll be updating the API documentation for that and opening the doors. We know that the twitter bot implementation definitely hacky and not quite sure why anyone would use it over a full-blown twitter client. Other proof-of-concept bots: dicebot (send "help" or hi), notifo (send "temp sf" or help), jill (not run by us, not sure if still up), et cetera
Thanks for the feedback!
I use notifo + push.ly to receive message when someone mentions me. As I have a 3G, switching over to the twitter app is slow and cumbersome, so replying-in-notifo is a good usecase :)
P.S. - I got notifo'd of your reply, both on my iphone and OS X with our desktop app haha
Agree about the mobile version of Stammy's blog. I'll keep nagging him about that too :)
I like the idea of bots, but I don't see a lot of consumer grade users using it. Seems more like a toy for the nerds amongst us, although I am sorely tempted to whip up an Eliza bot for notifo. That said, I also wanted to modify a z-code interpreter to allow people to play infocom games over twitter.
Whoa that sounds interesting - any details you can share?
