If you are on Airtel, then you can now start tweeting by simply sending an SMS to a predefined SMS short code. So, you need not have a hi-fi mobile with data connection activated on it to take advantage of Twitter on the go.
Apart from tweeting, you can also receive SMS messages with twits on your timeline, @mentions and direct messages. To start using the service all you need to do is..
- New twitter users send an SMS ‘SIGNUP’ to 53000 and follow the instructions
- Existing twitter users can link their Airtel numbers with Twitter using this page
- Once you have successfully linked your Airtel number with twitter, all you need to do is, send an SMS with your tweet message to 53000 (Premium SMS charges apply)
For ex. SMS “Hello world” to 53000
- Check this official twitter page for complete list of keywords you can use on your mobile.
