What a great way of doing this, with WhatsApp groups. I just wish they had more teams from more countries.

@cenk Just shoot me out for me teams! :D
@joaomdmoura @cenk Great idea! Would reach more people if it had native language support for the countries supported.

@joaomdmoura I’d love it if Fenerbahçe could be added! :)

@ykguler @cenk indeed, what I'm trying to do is to get some regional teams in their native languages.
@joaomdmoura @cenk don't forget Galatasaray :) how are you trying to do that? Partnerships?

interesting. going to test it. i think this will work wonders if users can select/msg what they'd like msgs about; whatsapp groups get flooded with msgs very easily nowadays

Haichen Wang@haichenw
Has anyone gotten this to work yet? Struggling to on mine. @joaomdmoura what tech are you using to build this? Really interested about the integrations being used!

@haichenw It's supposed to avoid send new during some hours, while ppl sleep, that might be the reason, but you should have received news already. The tech I used it Ruby + Rails + Sidekiq + Python, also Postgres + Redis, hosted on Heroku + Digital Ocean and scrapping from soccer news
Haichen Wang@haichenw
@joaomdmoura awesome.. Are you using yowsup to integrate? What's the plan for new features?

@joaomdmoura
