Text Alerts to your phone
If you are a frequent I-70 traveler, this is the tool for you.
1. Do you use Twitter? Follow @goi70 to receive road closure, delay, and other I-70 updates.
2. Not yet a Twitter user? Register with Twitter to receive text messages (more details here) or just:
- From your phone send a text message to 40404 that contains the word, “start“
- Twitter will reply. Follow the instructions and your phone will be registered with Twitter
- Dead simple (30 seconds).
Start receiving GoI70 Text Message Alerts:
- From your phone send a text message to 40404 with the words, “follow goi70“
Stop receiving GoI70 Text Message Alerts:
- From your phone send a text message to 40404 with the words “off goi70“
Logging on to your Twitter account directly will give you even more options for managing these text alerts. For instance, you can specify time periods that you do not want to receive GoI70 and/or GoI70traffic alerts.
Warning: While neither GoI70 nor Twitter charges you for this service, normal text charges on your phone will apply. You should sign up for an unlimited text message plan with your mobile carrier to use this feature.
Messages are found on the main website under the Messages tab on the right hand control panel, or via the link on our mobile app at http://goi70.com/mobile. This gives you access to the most timely information about I-70 right on your phone or desktop.
We use Twitter to share our alert messages with the world and make it as easy as possible for anyone to post a message. You can read the messages without a Twitter account. To post messages you will need a Twitter account and be logged in through our site. Talking about it sounds complicated, doing it is not.
To post a new message, click the ‘Sign in to Twitter’ button under the Messages tab of the main website or click ‘Send a Message‘ on the mobile application. You will be directed to Twitter where you can sign in (if you already have an account) or sign up (if you don’t). In both cases you’ll be sent back to our site automatically after you complete the process. It’s free and Twitter is fun.
