Twitter SMS from MTN

Twitter to SMS

MTN recently launched a free, and somewhat strange service called Twitter to SMS. The service allows MTN users to receive free SMS Twitter notifications from people they follow. While the service may seem as modern as the post-box it's actually pretty useful to many Twitter users in South Africa.

"Twitter SMS is exactly like the Twitter you use on your web browser or app but instead of using your data, you will receive SMS tweets from the people you have signed up to follow,” MTN explained. 

In order to register for Twitter SMS an MTN subscriber needs to simply sign up and then SMS the Twitter handle they would like to follow to 30002. 

The service is ideal for South African’s who have a Twitter handle but do not have a smart phone.
