Celly Text Message Information

As many of you may know, I have been experimenting with Celly to get timely messages out to people in situations where Twitter and Facebook may be a bit bulky.  The first major deployment of my alert system was during Hurricane Isaac.  It was pretty successful, with 32 users opting to follow our texts.  Now, as the emergency passes, I will be closing out the text messages for now.  I will be editing the items that are being tracked to be sent out via the specific Celly “cell” you are part of.  You do not have to opt out after a specific item is no longer on the front burner.  As other emergency situations arise, we will begin texting again, and you can receive them, or opt out at your pleasure.

In the meantime, here is a list of Celly instructions to help you with your subscription.

And thanks for being part of my Celly adventure.
