Perquisitive is an application that allows users to establish queries on Twitter and receive real-time email and/or SMS notifications when those queries produce hits. The app leverages Twitter's streaming API and applies 'follows' to the accounts identified in the query, which are then filtered on the app's back-end by the terms the user wishes to receive notifications about. A Twilio connection for SMS messaging allows users to avoid being tied to their Twitter feed and trying to parse valuable information. Perquisitive takes care of the hard work for you!
