These are just two messages we received when we debuted tweetMyMoney back in 2009.
Before the big mobile banking revolution became mainstream with apps now being expected by smart phone users, there was tweetMyMoney. This is a one-of-a-kind mobile banking solution created by Vantage Credit Union exclusively for its members, many of whom were requesting a better way to access basic account information using mobile.
tweetMyMoney was the first of its kind anywhere in the financial world back then, and it’s still available today, offering Vantage members another way to get account information without leaving Twitter, especially if they’re big users.
So if your phone can send and receive text messages, and you have a Twitter account, you’re ready for tweetMyMoney. It uses Twitter’s Direct Message feature to return account information to users upon request using simple hashtag commands.
The account information returned using tweetMyMoney includes:
- Account balances from a specific account or across all your deposit accounts
- Last 5 deposits from a specific account or across all your deposit accounts
- Last 5 withdrawals from a specific account or across all your deposit accounts
- Last 5 cleared checks
- Last 5 transactions from a specific account or across all your deposit accounts
- Account holds
Is it Secure? Yes!
Correspondence Authentication Codes appear at the end of every email and text communication returned or originated by Vantage Credit Union’s electronic services to help you ensure that these messages are indeed from Vantage and not an untrusted source. Each member has his/her own personal set of codes, which you may change any time in the Profile & Security menu of your dashboard if you prefer a more recognizable set of codes, or if you feel your codes have been compromised.
