Twicery: Twitter keyword monitoring
A user on Quora asked "Are there any free or cheap tools that would enable me to monitor a keyword and be notified whenever somebody over a certain follower threshold (say, 100,000) used it in a tweet?" I thought it was a great idea, so I built it. Specify Twitter keywords, set a minimum follower count, and receive an email when a suitably popular account tweets about it. You can also exclude retweets and filter out chosen accounts.

The fight inside my brain over how to pronounce Twicery is... intense.

I assume it rhymes with celery. Is there another way to pronounce it?

When I named it, I thought of the first syllable as rhyming with "Swiss". Once it was in beta, everyone who read it pronounced the first syllable as "twice", which is reasonable.

That didn't bother me until @davidjmcgee pointed it out.

Is the site down? I have not gotten a setup alert in 4 days and I know it has been triggered.

Did Twitter do something that has caused the site to not be able to send alerts? I have not received an alert for a few days now.
