Welcome to a brand-new and highly experimental feature on OddAlerts.
It might be that this falls flat on its face, but it was one of those ideas that takes over your mind and I was unable to leave it alone until something was live on the site. I had the idea on Tuesday after scheduling some content on Twitter and here we are on Friday morning with a working prototype.
I was looking to schedule some tweets on Raheem Sterling and his potential move to Chelsea. I wanted to get thoughts and opinions from those we have following on Twitter, but managing those replies is hard. So why not create a way to see what the community feels about a certain topic?
Having a place on OddAlerts dedicated to contextual football topics is great, and will allow me (or the community) to ask questions that can then live on as evergreen bits of content. I might start the /chat by talking about possible transfers and player performance but ultimately those “topics” could be about anything. We could be previewing a fixture, giving our thoughts on a certain market, or discussing a feature on OddAlerts.
I’m really excited to see where this goes… But for now, I must get back to working on the Smart Alerts!
