Most of us are familiar with the infamous micro blogging service Twitter. Among the many new features introduced by Twitter was an SMS updates feature which delivered status messages right into users mobile phones. Some fans of this service were disappointed when Twitter suspended offering SMS updates to some countries a few months ago. Here is the good news - Twe2 is a new free 3rd party service that delivers SMS updates even to countries that are not supported by Twitter.

twitter sms updates from twe2

To set up SMS updates, just login to Twe2 with your Twitter username and password. You will then be required to confirm your mobile via an SMS code. I did not experience any delays with confirmation SMS when I signed up.

Twe2 supports a long list of countries including Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan, Romania, Sweden, Netherlands, New Zealand, Australia, and lots more (see here for a full list of supported countries). Twe2 SMS service seems to be powered by – sometimes you get a few lines of advertisements in SMS updates. Considering the fact that this service is free, this is something I can live with. Twe2 does not seem to have any monthly SMS update limits. There is however a limit of 10 SMS updates per hour (this does not affect your Twitter account in any way).
