Are you the forgetful type? Are you afraid you’ll space the WWDC 18 keynote that is scheduled to kickoff Apple’s Developers Conference? Don’t fret about it bunkie, Apple will remind you.
You can now schedule an automated alert to arrive via your Twitter account to remind you just before the event starts on Monday by retweeting a post by Apple on Twitter.
On Thursday, Apple’s official Twitter account posted a tweet promoting the WWDC keynote address, which will be live streamed from McEnery Convention Center on Monday starting at 10 a.m. Pacific. Simply retweet the message, and your account will be tagged to receive a reply just ahead of the event.

As you can see above, the tweet includes a short animated video featuring the official WWDC 18 artwork. Similarly themed images are currently being applied to San Jose’s McEnery Convention Center.
When a user retweets the message, they receive a tweet confirming the retweet that says, “Thanks! We’ll send a reminder before the event so you’ll stay in the know. See you June 4. #WWDC18” The reply includes an animated iOS-style toggle switch sliding to the “ON” position, indicating the reminder has been enabled.
