Rounders Group Twitter Explained

We created Rounders "Group Tweets" which provides a way to send a message to all signed-up Rounders with just one tweet. The way it works is we tweet a single "Direct Message" to our pal Worm Murphy and he relays our message to all of his Rounders Twitter followers! One tweet goes to everyone, and its private to only our group.

Sign-up if you're going to the World Series Of Poker and want ability to broadcast and see messages while we are in Las Vegas.

The concept is, while members are scattered in various casinos in Las Vegas we can still coordinate, schedule, announce our arrival or movements, hook-up, ask who's still up at 4am, or just update the crew on your tournament status with just one single broadcast (tweet) that reaches everyone's phones.

Those back in L.A. are welcome to join this Twitter group but keep in mind these Group Tweets go to "everyone". The first time we used this some people in L.A. were a bit confused and tried to "chat" with us in Vegas. Please do not use this to "chat", it is not designed for chat, it is designed for broadcasts (text blasts) to members in Vegas (or those "listening" in L.A.). If you want to chat use facebook instead. If updating your tournament status, don't post every hand, just update how you are doing and where you are so we can drop by.

Also, FYI, many of us have our Twitter tweets automatically routed (posted) to facebook but these "Direct message" tweets will not go to facebook. This is because Twitter treats Direct messages as private and does not forward these to facebook. Just something to keep in mind when using the Group tweet.

Click the image (above) to create a Twitter account. Do not use some weird or unknown nickname because members will have NO idea WHO YOU ARE when you tweet which kinda defeats the purpose. If no one knows who you are they will likely ignore your tweet.

To get started:
  • Create a Twitter account
  • Add your mobile# (if you want use your phone, you can remove it anytime later) Go to: Settings/Mobile
  • Search for: @ropoke (our group Twitter is linked to Worm Murphy's Twitter account)
  • Submit a Follow Request to Worm Murphy and later YOU must grant Worm's request to Follow you. (establishes 2-way sending)
  • Download the Twitter App to your smartphone (or you can use your phones normal texting app)
When your Follow request is granted you will be able to see our Group Tweets. To send Group Tweets you must grant Worm's request to Follow you.

For those who have already used this function before, there is nothing to change, your current Twitter setup will work (make sure you didn't delete your phone number last year in your Twitter settings).

To send a group tweet type:

D @ropoke your message
As you can see there are three elements to send: 1=D (Direct message), 2=@ropoke (Worm Murphy's Twitter account), 3=your text message.

You can use your regular text messaging app that came with your phone by sending to text recipient "40404" then type the above line in the message area. If you're using the downloaded Twitter app you don't need to Text to 40404, it's really easier if you just download the Twitter app to your phone.

Also, this feature is not just for opening week of the WSOP, but can be used for any group road trip.

When you come back from Vegas (or road trip/event) and want to stop receiving tweets on your phone, simply login to your Twitter account and stop Following Worm Murphy or remove your Mobile number in Settings/Mobile.

Hope this explanation helps. We want your messages and welcome your woots from L.A. just wanted everyone to understand how this works smile

And those of you in Vegas, try not to "group tweet" us every five minutes or we'll have to block you tongue (yes, really)

Have fun and good luck to those going to Vegas during the WSOP,
