And now, the official instructions:

Turning on Tweet notifications from a specific person

Via the web:

  1. Visit your Settings page.
  2. Click the Mobile tab.
  3. Look for the area labeled Text notifications.
  4. Check the box for Tweets from people you’ve enabled for mobile notifications to receive text message notifications any time a specific person Tweets.
  5. Visit the profile page or click on the username of the user whose updates you want to receive via SMS (try typing https://twitter.com/username in your browser’s URL bar, or click through from your following page).
  6. Click the person icon on the user’s profile and select Turn on mobile notifications from the drop-down menu.
  7. If you no longer wish to receive text message updates from this user, select Turn off mobile notifications, from the same drop-down menu.

Find this online at Twitter

Now you too can be awakened by our tweeting Pontiff in the middle of the night!

A question for you: Are you a big texter?
