People and organizations start using Twitter today for general public announcements or as a primary communication channel in closed communities. For example, I use Twitter when I want to share a story with my students or announce a newly available studying material. But what do you do if there are some people who do not want to use Twitter and still rely on email communication? By using Twitter API and Google AppsScript you can write and run a simple mashup that sends an email anytime you post a new message on Twitter.
SendGrid, a leading cloud-based email service, has announced that the company has joined the Google Cloud Platform Partner Program giving App Engine developers a trusted third-party and non-native option for adding transactional email management and delivery services to their applications. In addition, Google App Engine customers will have access to SendGrid APIs, real-time analytics and reporting all of which are powered by Google services infrastructure.
