In short: This online tool will monitor brand mentions and keyword mentions on
and will send you notifications immediately after detecting a new mention.
You can also create black lists of accounts, websites or channels which the bot will ignore (e.g. if you don't want any notifications of your brand's mentions coming from your own Twitter account).
It's kind of like Google Alerts on steroids.
