FAIL: Twitter removes SMS updates
Thursday, August 14, 2008

ADVERTISEMENTS


Captain's Log Supplemental Stardate -315619.54


Just as when Rocky's enjoying his phTwitter + SMS Update setup, Twitter decides to remove its SMS update feature on countries outside UK.

Let's start with the bad news. Beginning today, Twitter is no longer delivering outbound SMS over our UK number. If you have been receiving SMS updates from Twitter via +44 762 480 1423, you'll notice that they've stopped and you may want to explore some of the alternatives we're suggesting.
Before we go into more detail, here's the good news. Twitter will be introducing several new, local SMS numbers in countries throughout Europe, in the coming weeks and months. These new numbers will make Twittering more accessible for all the folks who have been using SMS to send long-distance updates through our UK number.

[snipped]

Twitter will continue to negotiate with mobile operators in Europe, Asia, China, Australia, The Americas, and other regions to forge relationships that benefit all our users. Our goal is to provide full, two-way service with Twitter via SMS to every nation in a way that is sustainable from a cost perspective. Talks with mobile companies around the world continue. In the meantime, more local numbers for updating via SMS are on the way. We'll keep you posted.

Hey Globe, how about negotiating with Twitter to establish a local Twitter number to send out updates?
