USA Today Twitter Account Sends Alerts to Phones

SportsPSA is a new Twitter account from USA Today that is designed to keep sports fans updated on the latest news, even when they’re not looking at Twitter.

To get “the heads up before something major goes down,” all you have to do is follow SportsPSA and turn on Twitter’s notifications. Then USA Today’s sports editors who operate the account will send you all the sports updates your little heart desires.

This isn’t much different from any of the many sports apps that use notifications, but it is new! So that’s… Something.
