Twitter is a free utility that connects its users through very small instant status messages. Other members can view these status messages on Twitter website, IM chat windows, desktop, Internet applications and SMS. Twitter recently withdrawn the SMS and IM based status update service due to some data server issues. However, now you can continue to receive Twitter updates by SMS using the method given below. Unfortunately Twitter free SMS status updates are only available to people from India.
