Sending Emails Through Twitter – Stepcase Lifehack

send emails via Twitter, here is how I could see things going.

I preface this little article by saying that you could use anything that you can easily update a feed with, not just Twitter.

1. Firstly, set up Twitter to send notifications to your email account.

Twitter doesn’t do this natively, so you will have to use your Twitter RSS feed with something like – this site will send any feed to your email as they come through with a small delay.

2. Using Gmail, or a similar email client, go to set up a new filter.

For any given contact you would want to be able to email via Twitter, add a code to the filter’s subject field. For instance, if you want to send Craig an email, add something like tocraig in the Subject field.

3. Then in the Forward it to box, add Craig’s email address while checking things like Skip the inbox etc.
