i am not addicted to twitter…

…but I’d really like to receive Twitter updates on my mobile device as it was from year and a half ago when I could get sms directly to my mobile inbox: no browser, no applications, just plain and simple receiving text messages from the people I followed and sending directly from my mobile operator. I really miss Twitter with sms for a long time:

Sending updates to Twitter while you’re away from your computer makes things much more interesting. It’s all done through text messages (aka “SMS”), which you probably use all the time anyway, so there’s not much to learn.Twitter doesn’t charge anything for this, but be sure to know what your text plan looks like with your wireless carrier. If you use your mobile in Canada, The United States, or India you can also receive updates via SMS. You can text “OFF” to stop receiving and “ON” to start again.

Now the only information I have got when I tried to update with new mobile number was:

I am not Twitter addict but I’d really like to receive sms’s on my mobile device: is there a way for some European countries to make this come true? Through other services, e.g. Jaiku? What is your experience?

    I’m looking, too. And tweetSMS is a bit too expensive, isn’t it?

  2. maybe we should write a petition to people at Twitter asking them to bring it back?

  3. Irek says:

    @Dejan yes that’s a good idea

    Irek and Dominik: I cannot find Serbia here, plus read this: Unfortunately, mobile phone operators around the world charge us to send you text messages.
    see? we used to receieve free tweets from Twitter (at least) and we were charged when we used to send tweets from mobiles – which is fine. Tweetsms doesn’t seem to work for me.

    Dejan: uhm, maybe some petition, but I think I saw something like that

  5. Irek says:

    I got good idea, maybe you can find all of your friend on brightkite.com or force them to use this service. Bkite support free sms to your country.

  6. […] Twitter doesn’t support anymore facility of receiving free sms’s on my mobile device, I am testing few services these days, and came to conclusion that the only micro-blogging service […]

  7. Marc Rapp says:

    Wow. I didn’t realize twitter stopped the service. All-though, I suspect it will be back within a few months.

    Hope you have a pleasant holiday. 🙂

  8. Twitter is an amazing tool, for allowing you to connect with others
