SMSTweet helps you Tweet by Sending an SMS

smstweets Back in October last year, Airtel in collaboration with Twitter launched a service using which all Airtel customers could Tweet via SMS without needing to have an expensive data activated phone. SMSTweet is a similar service launched by a Bangalore based startup that helps you tweet by sending an SMS to a 10 digit mobile number.

How to use SMSTweet?

  1. Link your twitter account with SMSTweet either by visiting or sending an SMS “REGISTER <twitter username> <twitter password>” to 09220092200 (Mumbai) or 09243000111 (Bangalore)
    Users from outside Mumbai/Bangalore can use either of the above numbers
  2. Once your twitter account is linked with SMSTweets, send “TWT <your message>” to 09220092200 (Mumbai) or 09243000111 (Bangalore)
    For ex. SMS “Tweeting via SMS using SMSTweet” to 09220092200 or 09243000111
  3. Immediately after posting your message onto your timeline, SMSTweet will send you an SMS with latest @mention indicating your message has been successfully posted on your timeline.

Advantages of SMSTweet

  • Tweet even with a simplest black&white mobile without worrying to have a data activated phone.
  • Unlike on Airtel, use non-premium 10 digit number to Tweet that can cost you as low as 1 paise per SMS

    So now, we can even tweet with reliance sms packs…..
    I guess I need to write an article on how people can utilize the 500 sms per day pack…
    You can utilize Services like
    ~Google SMS Channels
    ~Google Search
    ~Wave Secure(it uses SMS for confirmations)
    ~Flash SMS(Like the ones that N/W operators send)
    ~Last but not the least, Chatting with frens via sms

    and a lot more than that(which I am not aware of yet)…..
