Anyone can get text message alerts using Twitter’s “Fast Follow” feature, even without a Twitter account or Texas State email address.

  • Text “follow TxStateOoEM" to 40404. You will receive a text message confirming your request.

Once you have set up Fast Follow, you can:

  • Temporarily stop receiving text alerts by texting “OFF” to 40404
  • Begin receiving text alerts again by texting “ON” to 40404
  • Opt out of Fast Follow and stop receiving text alerts by texting “unfollow TxStateOoEM” to 40404

If you have a Twitter account, follow @TxStateOoEM to see alerts on your Twitter feed. You can update your notification settings to get updates sent as text messages.
