Twitter SMS Updates Now Available to Globe and Touch Mobile Subscribers
Monday, September 08, 2008


Captain's Log Supplemental Stardate -315688.32

Twitter recently stopped sending SMS updates through their UK number to users not living in USA, Canada and India. Well good news to Twitter users in the Philippines. Globe Telecom has introduced another service under their UPD8 brand, Twitter SMS. It's available to all Globe and Touch Mobile subscribers.

For P2.50/SMS, you can now update your Twitter via SMS and at the same time, receive SMS updates. To register and start using the service, compose a text message with the following content TWITREG [username] [password] and send to 2370. Once registered, you may now update your status by sending TWIT [message/update] and send to 2370.

Here are the complete command keywords (access number is 2370):

Rate: P2.50/SMS
Actual message you'll receive:

Welcome to Twitter, register by sending TWITREG to 2370 to send and receive messages to your twitter account. P2.50/txt for more info, txt TWIT HELP to 2370 P2.50/txt

To register you account: TWITREG [username] [password]

TWIT MORE to receive personal messages.
TWIT OFF to stop receiving personal alerts.
Text to 2370 P2.50/txt.

It's no secret that I'm a myGlobe forum administrator but there's a cheaper way to send your SMS updates. Ever heard of phTwitter? It lets you update your Twitter account for just P1 and if you're subscribed to the unlimited SMS service, updates will be free. phTwitter does not offer SMS updates though.

It's up to you what service to choose in sending. But one thing's certain, Globe and TM subscribers can now receive 3 Twitter SMS updates per day and P2.50 per additional 3 message. Globe's UPD8 Twitter may also be more reliable than phTwitter.

Follow Globe on Twitter, just add Globe's official Twitter account. You may also follow me on Twitter by adding my Twitter account.

Hey Globe, how about increasing those "free" updates per day?
