Did Twitter Spam Your Mobile Phone?

July 2nd, 2008

Yesterday I received an sms from Unidentified Sender, with the following content:

Keep your friends up to date on what you are doing with Twitter, the micro-blogging site, now on your mobile! Normal data rates apply.


The message certainly looks like it really came from twitter.

I have been using twitter for a while, still trying on it. I find that the service is not reliable enough, sometimes slow, sometimes down.

Are they spamming text messages to all mobile numbers in the world? I don't receive much sms like this from US. Is everybody receiving it?

If any of you are using twitter, please let me know.

If my article helped you solved your problem, consider buy me a beer!

You are lucky. I wonder whether we get charged for posting or receiving updates in mobile?
