The Club operates a TWITTER feed with regular announcements about meetings and other activities. Accessing this information is not complicated, in its simplest form you need only look at the feed in a web browser, you can do this by bookmarking the following link:

SBARC Twitter Feed

However, to get more than this, such as access to the feed on different platforms or possibly text message alerts it is necessary to have a TWITTER account and use either a dedicated TWITTER Client or to configure your account settings.

This page will show you how to do this:

Step 1 – Set up a TWITTER Account

If you already have a TWITTER Account please skip ahead to the next step, otherwise:

  1. Open you web browser of choice (Chrome/Chromium, Firefox, Opera, Safari, Silk etc.)
  2. Goto the TWITTER home page
  3. Click on “Sign Up”
  4. Either:
    1. Enter your name and mobile ‘phone number; or
    2. Click on “Use Email Instead” and enter your name and e-mail address

  5. Click “Next”
  6. On the next screen entitled “Customise your Experience” you can leave all three items unchecked and click “Next”
  7. The next screen confirms the details you entered:
    1. If these are incorrect click on the back arrow in the top left corner; otherwise
    2. If these are all correct click on “Sign Up”
  8. On the next screen enter a password of your choice. This must be a minimum of 6 characters, however it is recommended to make your password at least 8 characters and include a minimum of: 1 uppercase letter, 1 lowercase letter, 1 number and 1 punctuation mark. Once you have chosen and entered a password click on “Next”
  9. TWITTER will send you a verification e-mail, or presumably text you a verification code if you signed up with a mobile ‘phone number. Click on “OK” and then get the Verification Code from your e-mail account
  10. Enter the verification Code and click on “Next”
  11. You can update your profile details by clicking on the head and shoulders silhouette in the top right corner of the screen and selecting “Profile” and then clicking on “Edit Profile”
  12. Step 2 – Following South Bristol ARC

    1. Search for “South Bristol ARC” as shown above
    2. Click on the “Follow” button in the South Bristol ARC result

    Step 3 – Turn on Mobile Notifications (optional)

    If you want to obtain mobile notifications then click on the “3 dots” alongside the “Follow” button and select “Turn on Mobile Notifications”

    If this is the first time you have used this aspect of TWITTER then you will be asked to “Setup Mobile Notifications”. To start this process:

    1. Click on the “Setup Phone” button”
    2. Enter your mobile number omitting the leading zero and click on “Continue”
    3. Enter the Activation Code that will be sent by SMS on the next screen and click “Activate Phone”
    4. Click the check box associated with “Tweet Alerts”, select “Sleep Settings” to suit yourself and click on “Save Changes”

    Step 4 – TWITTER Clients (Optional)

    There is no need to have a dedicated TWITTER Client, it is quite possible to operate TWITTER by simply logging in at the web page. However, specific TWITTER clients are available for the majority of platforms. There is a Chrome/Chromium plugin from TWEETDECK which is good for any platform that supports Chrome/Chromium. On Android and iOS Tweetcaster is mature and stable.

    There are many other alternatives for Windows, OSX, Linux, BSD, iOS, Android and Blackberry, a google search for TWITTER Clients and your OS of choice should quickly reveal many candidates so what are you waiting for.
