The New Subscriber Event

The "new subscriber" event is a webhook event that is triggered whenever any of your textwords acquire a new subscriber. This event will happen in any of the following circumstances...

  • Someone texts in to join one of your lists.
  • Someone enters a contest that isn't yet on your text list.
