Twitter clarification; Prospect report

Just a note to clear up any confusion regarding my BBC Kings alerts  ( see side bar-->)

if you follow twitter @ Prosbird you most likely will not get mobile cell alerts since my cell number now is under the twitter@BBCKingsbirds file due to problem with prosbird twitter account.BBCKingsbirds is the main account which prosbird follows

If you send a tweet or text message to 40404 with the command FOLLOW BBCKingsbirds on your cell message (SMS) , you should get the rare bird alerts.

Otherwise, thru the web Twitter, most who follow twitter @Prosbird will have to request  following BBCKingsbirds. Try the cell  phone tweet first.
