Hey, I am interested in doing something very similar to what FIRST is doing with scores via twitter, but with WGI (www.wgi.org).
The scores are posted to a page like this.
Now, I have already successfully filtered out the scores I want, but I would like to get this via text message (thus where twitter comes in). As I was typing this, I also thought of using PHP to send the results via email to my phone, so stop me if that will work better.
The trouble is this- I would like to be able to send a text requesting specific information.
For example a text saying “Irondale-MN Regional-Finals” would would get a response with Irondale’s finals score at the Minnesota regional.
I am pretty sure I could effectively use the response to display the right information by myself, but I have no idea how to set up the text messaging to the php script.
