I created an app that texts you NBA news.
Python, Flask, Twilio
July 18, 2022
It's the NBA offseason ("F5 Season") and fans want the latest breaking news.
Text your phone "F5" to get NBA alerts for the day.
F5 Season is an NBA meme that means fans are constantly refreshing their news feeds to learn about breaking news.
> F5 on your keyboard is the refresh button.
I built an app that sends you NBA news whenever you text “F5” to your Twilio phone number. Why? Well, during the NBA offseason, fans want to have up-to-date info about recent trades or trade requests.
I also wrote a tutorial, so you can build this app yourself. Check it out on Twilio’s Blog.
You can check out the code on GitHub.
