  • Heck this just got a lot nicer with Fast Follow. Now anyone in the US can receive tweets via SMS (even those without a Twitter account). Ofcourse to respond to a tweet (or a poll, rate, trivia tweet created via twextter) via SMS the user needs to have a Twitter account - and they can use the SIGNUP command to do so. http://blog.twitter.com/2010/08/introducing-fast-follow-and-other-sms.html
