Text Messages? Sounds expensive. How much will Twitter cost me?
Twitter charges you nothing, but how much it costs to use Twitter with text messaging depends on your text messaging plan. Standard text messaging rates (such as international text messaging fees) do apply. Consult your service provider to ensure that your text plan covers your Twitter usage.
When I give you my number, you wont charge my phone bill?
No. Twitter doesn't charge your phone bill. Sending and receiving messages to Twitter is like sending to a regular number. Usage charges for text messaging are applied by your carrier and depend on your SMS plan. Some people pay a per-message charge of ten cents or more. Some people have an allotted number of text messages monthly. Some (lucky!) people have unlimited text plans.
How does Twitter use my phone number?
Think of Twitter as a single contact who sends all of the messages from your friends. Twitter uses your number to send web updates to your phone in text message format. Your number is private; Twitter never reveals phone number information.
How do I turn ALL twitter messages off or on from my phone?
To stop getting Twitter updates, send OFF, STOP, or QUIT from your phone at anytime. We will send you a final message confirming that your phone notifications are off. Sending ON will turn them back on.
Does this service only work on iPhones?
No, it works on any cell phone the exact same way. We are just showing you an example on the iPhone.
